Cool! Thank you. I used to use this camera. It's my spare nowadays. I bought a system camera and the quality is hard to beat - but not all times expensive is better. It's all about the composition.

Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken a summer's morning on my own private dock by the lake Ballasjön in Sweden.

Time

Early in the morning.

Lighting

It's all natural light.

Equipment

Nikon Coolpix S9100

Inspiration

It was just the moment. I saw my cat, Lady sit on the dock by herself looking out over the lake. It was just that special and I am so happy I had my pocket camera along.

Editing

No, none what so ever. SOOC.

In my camera bag

Nowadays I carry dslr cameras. Nikon D7200 and Nikon D750. My most used lenses are the 10-24, 24-70, 70-200 and 200-500mm. This range can handle just about any situation so this is what I bring to photoshoots. My most used every day lense is the nikkor 24-70mm. Very all round.

Feedback

Just take the opportunity when it appears. And photography is not about the equipment, it's what you do with what you have!
