Behind The Lens

I took this photo about 10 minutes away from my home in the rural part of our city. This was a random farm, that had its horses out and the owners were gracious enough to allow me to take some pictures.
This photo was taken in the afternoon, in the latter part of September.
The lighting was all natural for this photo.
To take this photo I used my Canon EOS REBEL T3i and my 250mm lens.
I am always trying to capture didn't things. I have been trying to come across horses that are not busy eating. So I was so pleased to come across these magnificent creatures, just hanging out together. I hope to one day capture horse running freely.
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. With this shot I also went a bit further and adjusted the vibrancy and saturation.
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
My advice is just 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. Most of all I just recommend that you just have fun with your camera and your surroundings!
