Behind The Lens

Location
This photos was taken at the Boerner Botanical Gardens in Hales Corners, WI.
Time
It was shot durning the late morning.
Lighting
Natural sunlight.
Equipment
Canon 70D
Inspiration
I love to shoot flowers, especially ones that are unique, or before or after full bloom. I feel the black background accentuates the flower in a very dramatic way.
Editing
I simply converted it to black+white and did some minor adjustments.
In my camera bag
I recently bought a Lensbaby for shooting botanicals. I have a 100mm Macro lens. I also have a Canon 6D. I made a black card to use behind a single flower head. I often bring both cameras when I shoot. I use the Tamron 16-300 zoom on the 70D because I love the range it gives me. I love the clarity I get from my 100mm macro with the "L" glass. I also have various lens filters in my bag.
Feedback
There is really no secret, practice makes perfect. I shoot in any kind of weather, day or night. I have a membership with the American Horticulture Society, so I visit many gardens all during the year. I look for flowers and plants that are unique in some way. I make adjustments in post processing to bring out the most detail. I have a strong background in art, which has helped me a great deal in developing my eye for photography. I continuously hone my skills with practice and education. By becoming very observant, you can always find something interesting to photograph.
