Behind The Lens

Location
I took this image on the streets of London
Time
An overcast afternoon.
Lighting
The lighting was very flat.
Equipment
Nikon D3100, hand-held
Inspiration
I was struck by the far-away, yet sad look in her eyes and the close protection of her partner.
Editing
I transformed this image to B&W to focus more on the emotions and less distraction with background colours, etc.
In my camera bag
I don't regard myself as a "photographer" so I don't have a bag, as such... my camera is always at the ready, usually on my desk or bench behind me - at best, I use a soft PJ bag before it gets thrown in my backpack - I use the one zoom lens always - 28mm-200mm - I'm a creature of habit - and just love taking photos at my own "granny" pace...I've always documented my life and surrounds through my camera - since I was a child.
Feedback
No advice... just enjoy the details around you, it's all intricately woven; keep observing and viewing life from many standard as well as unique angles - go behind the subject sometimes to get a different perspective - but most of all enjoy the process, never stop wandering, wondering and observing!
