Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in the city of Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands. Taken in a street with a lot of houses for students
Time
It was about 14.00, so in the middle of the day.
Lighting
All natural light. The sun was shining a bit, with some clouds as well. When I took the photo, the light was just right. I love the take pictures with only natural light, because it looks, offcourse, more natural.
Equipment
I used my Sony nex 6 with an old minolta md 50mm 1.7, manual focus. Used with an adapter to attach it to the camera. No flash or tripod was used.
Inspiration
First I loved the viewpoint. The girl was sitting there very relaxed, enjoying the weather. It is an unusual point of view and that is way I found it very interesting. When I saw the light coming from behind the clouds, I knew I needed the photo, so I took it.
Editing
Yes, but not much. Offcourse it is transformed into some sort of black and white, with some extra color changing, to get that almost silver look. And I added some extra bokeh to let the viewer focus on her face and upper body. This is al done in photoshop, with the Nik analog efex pro plug-in.
In my camera bag
Offcourse my camera, and some lenses. Almost always I have my Sigma art 35mm 1.4, with sony la ea4 adapter, to keep the autofocus. Other lenses depend on the kind of photos I want to take. I also love my Konica hexanon 135mm 2.8. Some spare batteries, lens towel, charger and that kind of stuff, are also in my bag.
Feedback
This is a street photo. When you walk somewhere, walk slow. Be aware of everything that is happening in the street and constantly think about how it would look like on a photo. Think in photos. When you see something interesting, then ask yourself if your current point of view is good, or if you need to change it (because of the light, or maybe something is blocking your view). When you have your point of view, with the correct light, think about the settings of the camera. Do you need a fast shutter speed or maybe a very narrow depth of field? This is very important because this can make a photo a "wow photo" or just a nice picture. When everything is done, take the picture and look at it on your camera. Satisfied? When you ar not completly satisfied, think about how it could become better and try to achieve it with another photo. Finaly, if you have your photo, watch it on your computer monitor and do some editing if necessary. Good luck ;)
