Behind The Lens

Location
These tulips were east of the house in front of a propane tank you can't see.
Time
This picture was taken in the late afternoon. Tulips close at night till the blooms can't close and there is the type of bloom you want to capture as well whether you want a bud, a tight flower or a completely open flower. If you don't know try to catch all of the stages and compare the pictures at the end.
Lighting
This was natural light but, I was trying different exposures at that time.
Equipment
This was a Nikon 5200. I was laying on the ground using my elbows as a tripod. I try to look at where I'll be laying before I do it so I don't end up in something like an ant hill or over a snake hole.
Inspiration
My mother loves pink flowers but, she has limited mobility and can't go out and see these flowers herself. So, I end up taking pictures of the prettiest flowers and showing them to her on the computer.
Editing
I cropped these a little but, there wasn't any real post processing done on this photo.
In my camera bag
A grip with two charged batteries, a tripod, a lens that can do basic macro to about 300mm and a landscape lens to capture the changing weather. I also have a ground cover that folds up into itself.
Feedback
Try different angles on different sides of flowers. Laying on the ground and trying to get below the level of the bloom can give you the picture you are trying to get. Look out for poisonous plants, animals and insects if you do get on the ground. I have a black ground cover that can be used as a background or as ground cover.
