Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in the grounds of Carrick Hill, a grand heritage building set on a hillside overlooking Adelaide, South Australia. The gardens include a Story Book Trail, designed to enable children to explore and discover the natural world, via a walk through the gardens with scenes from classic children’s tales to encourage their imagination. This was at the Jungle Book camp, which has a series of cubby houses, the Howling Wolf on the Council rock, plus elephants, tiger and zebras scattered throughout the surrounding bushes.
Time
This photo was taken very late morning, not long before midday. Is was a hot and sunny summer's day during the school holiday break. Usually I wouldn't pick this time of day to take photos, but I was just wanting to snap some photos of my kids having some fun.
Lighting
There's nothing special about the lighting for this photo, it was taken under the hot midday sunny Australian summer sky, but on the shaded side of the cubby house, which gave a nice even light.
Equipment
This photo was shot on a Nikon d750 with a Nikon 50mm f1.4. No other equipment was used
Inspiration
I was trying to snap some photos of my children while they were having fun playing in the cubby houses. They (like a lot of photographers children) were a bit sick of having their photos taken, and were hiding from me and the camera, but I wasn't giving up. I had a split second to get this photo when her little head poked out the window to see if I was there or not, this is the moment she spotted me and the next second that window was slammed shut and she was gone.
Editing
I cropped this photo to follow the rule of thirds, and placed her eye on the intersection of two of the guidelines. I did my usual adjustments to lighting, contrast etc. in lightroom and converted it to black and white using Alien Skin, exposure 7 software.
In my camera bag
The equipment I have in my bag at any one time depends on where I am going and what I am shooting (as I have a varied interest in what I like to shoot, and a range of different gear to go along with it). When shooting portraits it's usually a combination of the Nikon 50mm f1.4, sigma 35mm f1.4 art and sigma 105mm f2.8 macro. For birds and wildlife, it is always the Tamron 150-600mm. I usually handhold these shots, but if I am going to be lugging it around for a long time, I'll sometimes put it on a monopod. For landscapes I carry a Nikon 16-35mm f4 and I have two Samyang lenses, the 14mm f2.8 and 24mm tilt-shift, manfrotto tripod and Nisi filters.
Feedback
I didn't want to miss my chance to get some photos when I could, even though the kids really weren't cooperating for photos, so I turned it into a bit of a game with them hiding from me, which they were enjoying. They move very quickly, so I had a very fast shutter speed to avoid missing or blurring any of the photos. Even though they didn't really want their photos taken at the time, they were having fun hiding from me and the camera, but it doesn't always work out that way. Sometimes I just have to read them, and when I can see that they really don't want the camera pointed at them and are getting upset if I continue to do so, I have to concede and put it away.
