Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Edgerton Park in New Haven CT. The park has a community garden where members plant small gardens plots with a variety of flowers and vegetables. The community garden attracts visitor from the surrounding towns during the summer and fall months.
Time
Mid to late afternoon.
Lighting
Natural lighting...
Equipment
Canon 40D, Sigma 70-200mm lens and tripod.
Inspiration
When I viewed the beauty of the daisies what drew me was this one flower at the end of its life cycle. Still beautiful in age and fitting perfectly in the scene of younger daisies. An analogy of life.
Editing
My usual adjustments in Photoshop are the following. Levels adjustment for the color range. Curves adjustment for tonal range and richness of color. The photo is then switched from RGB to LAB mode and Unsharp mask in the Lightness Channel to bring out detail, back to RGB and crop for print.
In my camera bag
Canon 40D with the following lenses. Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 and Sigma 70-200mm 2.8. Canon 480 EX flash and other assorted equipment essentials. In the summer my tripod is always in my car.
Feedback
For me it is important look at the scene closely and to determine what I want to photograph and why it inspires me emotionally. Then composing the photo as best as possible with the best DOF and exposure. I also try to give the photo breathing room to then make a better composition. Sometimes the beauty is in the ordinary.
