Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in my garden. I'm a totally self taught photographer and whenever I get a result like this... well! whoever shares my burning passion for photography can understand the feeling.
Time
This was a planned photo shoot with my daughter who always complains to not be photogenic, and I was determined to show her that it's not the case. It was a great moment of the day, the well known golden hour, around 18.30 in my hometown, Italy. We made many shots, in several light positions. This one was for me amazing, because was able to combine the magic of the light and her sweetness. It was taken the 11th april 2016 and settings were 1/25 sec. f5,6 105mm. In addition there is a story behind this photo. It is a double exposure, one of my first try ever. Few days before I was in a wonderful beach waiting for the sunset and I noticed the sun was going down slowly and in its walk was exactely in the WOW position on a group of wheat and small flowers. I took the photo and loved the result. Few days later I made my daughter photo and I could only think to merge them: the two shoots were like calling each other, same warm light and same romantic atmosphere. This is how the photo was born.
Lighting
In my opinion the golden hour gives us fellows photographers a lot of possibilities, it's just natural, no need of artificial lights or too much post processing.
Equipment
Just my nikon d7200 with a polarizer filter, the warmth of my hometown sun and the love for my daughter.
Inspiration
To be honest just the strong sensation to have in front of me two "twins", if you allow me the term. I am speaking about light, warmth and atmosphere.
Editing
I generally use Lightroom, in this case I worked a bit on contrast and luminance because I wanted to make stronger the poetry of the photo, that's all.
In my camera bag
I have a a not so big bag :) I always bring with me my nikkor 18-105, a ND 10 stop filter and my other lens a nikkor 70-300. On my shoulder a tripod, as I love landscape photography.
Feedback
Never be tired to try and experiment, the heart leads us and, as photography is an art, art has no limits or borders. Since when my passion for photography started, is like I "see" anyone and everything surrounding me as a possible photo, my heart beats faster and my imagination flies. I just do not care about results, I just want to try and see the outcome. Is the only way, less brain and more heart :)
