"... which completes my quota for today!" - said the Ant. Clutching the last seed he parachuted himself to the "FunGus Bar & Grill", his favorite dive. Later he went home, ate a bit of tongue soup from his wife, annoyed the kids, and went to sleep. Tomorrow's the new day... ;)

Behind The Lens

Location
I made this shot right in front of my home. It's one of the perks of living in the country, instead of being surrounded by asphalt & concrete!
Time
Quoth the Exif, 12-May-15 12:18:37 :)
Lighting
Here's all of it. Shutter Speed:1/250 s; F-Number: f/3.2; ISO 100; Exposure Bias Value: 0.00 eV; Metering Mode: Pattern; Flash: Off, Did not fire; and Focal Length: 5.5 mm. Plus, the camera also has a special "Micro" mode, very handy to take on the small world around us!
Equipment
Olympus Tough TG-2 - good for many things on and under the water. No other equipment was needed.
Inspiration
Of course, it was the ant's activity, firing up the imagination for various stories, like the one I used for the picture description.
Editing
I had to crop this one somewhat, so as to make a better layout of image elements. Nothing much more worth mentioning was required.
In my camera bag
I find it easier to carry a photo vest than any photo bag. So I load my photo vest with whatever I might need for my photo session, walk or trip, while my photo bags usually keep the equipment I'm not using at the moment. The vest's many pockets usually contain two cameras, spare batteries, ND and CPL filters, and one photo clamp standing in for a tripod. Recently I include a small action camera, mainly for its wide field of view and resistance to water and weather. The vest also has large-lens pockets that contain a small water bottle, sandwich, or a bar of chocolate if I plan on being out for the whole day. There is about three meters length of paracord or similar strong, thin rope, one hefty pocket knife, and a lighter. My smartphone comes along too. It has yet another spare camera, but more importantly the Spirit Level App wich I use to make the phone a perfectly horizontal surface under my camera. This is essential for panoramic sweeps. The app is free, and requires no extra permissions whatsoever. The large back pocket of the vest is reserved for a lightweight rain poncho. If the weather suddenly plays up, the poncho neatly covers all. Using the tools mentioned above, much can be improvised along the way, so that's all I need to make photos.
Feedback
According to Murphy's Law[s], when you set out to photograph landscapes, usually the best shot of the day will be something on another theme! So be ready for all scales and aspects at all times. That's why I always have a side camera capable of approaching themes that may appear while the main camera is busy with something else. Beside this, another saying comes to mind; this one from Mel Gibson in "The Patriot": "Aim small, hit small!" Have a Good Light!
