One word. WOW!

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in our garden. Sometimes I just grab my camera and go out to shoot some macro.
Time
I came home from work on a saturday and it was one of the first sunny days after a long rainy period. The photo was taken in April 2016 at 1.30 pm.
Lighting
It was really bright sunlight at that time. I had to find an angle where the busy bees were not in dark shadows.
Equipment
I used my Canon 70D and the 105mm from Sigma.
Inspiration
The weather. :) I saw the sun and I had to go out. Didn't know that I would shoot that little guy.
Editing
I did a lot of color corrections to get a nice purple look. The background was green and the flower was blue. Originally the colors were too distured and draw the viewer's attention away fromo the bee.
In my camera bag
For macro shots I always have the 70D and the 105mm macro with me.
Feedback
Grab your camera and go out! Concentrate on the small things and after a short moment you will see the small big world with a macro photoghrapher's eyes!
