I like this shot for its detail, lighting and concept. A beautiful macro.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in my backyard. My son found this beautiful caterpillar and pointed it out quickly to me as he knows I love photographing them. Just imagine what kind of gorgeous butterfly this caterpillar will turn into.
Time
It was late in the afternoon when I took this.
Lighting
I did not use any flash. The lighting is all natural and I was actually therefor very lucky.
Equipment
I used my Nikon D5100 to take this photo with my Tamron 18-200mm lens.
Inspiration
I love photographing insects of all kinds, but special and beautiful looking caterpillar are a bonus.
Editing
I kept the post processing very simple as I only know the basics on photoshop.
In my camera bag
I just have my Nikon D5100 with my Tamron 18-200mm lens and always a spare battery.
Feedback
There is something to learn everyday. Every situation you capture a photo is different. If possible take as many photo's as you can from different angles, different aperture etc etc so you can choose your best shot afterwards and you can make sure you actually have a 'best' shot.
