Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on the beautiful island of Malta, while attending my cousin's wedding. The venue gave us an impressive and different vantage point of Mdina the Silent City built by the Knights of St. John.
Time
This photo was taken in the afternoon, in the month of May.
Lighting
The lighting was all natural for this photo.
Equipment
To take this photo I used my Canon EOS REBEL T2i and my 250 mm lens.
Inspiration
The view and scenery was spectacular!
Editing
Yes, I did some tweaking in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. First I always like to straighten and crop my photos. Typically if I have taken a decent shot with the camera, I will usually adjust the highlights, shadows, whites, blacks and clarity if need be. I also tend to tweak the vibrancy and saturation, and then I adjust the sharpening and noise reduction.
In my camera bag
I typically carry 3 cameras in my bag. A Canon EOS REBEL T3i, Canon EOS REBEL T2i and my Waterproof Canon Powershot D20 cameras. I also have 3 lens I carry, an 18 mm, a 55 mm, and 250 mm lens. I also have my Canon Speedlite 430EX II. I always carry a minimum of 4 fully charged batteries for either the cameras or for the flash and I also have a battery charger with me just in case. I carry a polarizing filter, a little water spray bottle, lens cleaners and a remote for the cameras. It would be nice to travel a little lighter, but I do want to try and be prepared, just in case that photo opportunity does present itself. Mind you, I do realize I need to start bringing my tripod out with me more.
Feedback
My advice is to always have a camera on hand, you just never know when a Kodak moment will present itself. Always try to be observant and respectful of your surroundings and nature. Soak in all the natural and manmade beauty that surrounds us. If you just stop and really take a look, you will see that there is beauty all around us. If I find something I am inspired to shoot, I try playing with the settings and angles of the shot. I can take several shots of a single scene, with an adjustment here and there, or shoot from another perspective. As an amateur photographer I am constantly trying to develop my eye and skills. Another thing that I have learned along the way is that no matter how good a photographer you are or aren't, you can always tweak a picture with post photo-editing programs. But there is a fine line between tweaking and over doing the adjustments. But then again, it is all a matter of personal taste and your personal artistic expression. Most of all I just recommend that you just have fun with your camera and your surroundings!
