Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in the botanical garden of Freiburg (south-west of Germany).
Time
During my afternoon round in the botanical garden I found this wonderful pulsatilla. The photo was taken on May 5,2016 at 15:34 PM Although the time of day was not ideal,this plant was located in the penumbra.
Lighting
The location of the pulsatilla was ideal in order to set it in a beautiful light.In addition I also used the other flowers in th background with a bokeh effect.
Equipment
I used an olympus digital camera E-PL 5 to take the picture with a macrolense 60 mm in addition a deflector.No other equipment was involved.
Inspiration
The pulsatilla flower is a very mysterious plant and she is also very photogenic flower. I liked the challenge myself,so I wanted try and take a picture of a single flower,as they usually grow in clusters.
Editing
Usually I take my pictures in RAW.With RAW you´re able to produce higher quality images and it is easier to edit the images without loosing on quality.This image editing is required.For the further processing of the RAW photos i used "Lightroom".,in order to achieve the best result. In Lightroom I used the contrast slider in order to increase the contrat to help bring out more specific details.
In my camera bag
My olympus digital camera E-PL 5 with lens 14-150 mm,f/5,6 and my prefered macrolens 60 mm f/2,8,a deflector,a bean-bag or a little light weight tripod.I like using my system camera which is very handy and easy to use.It also contains a folding screen.Of course you could also use a proper SLR-camera in order to obtain even better pictures.but this smaller,light-weight camera has completely convinced me in my days to day use,especially as i can always take it around with me.
Feedback
When I want to create a nice bokeh,I in general look for a good setting (background)-eg.splash of colours through eg.other blossoms. Further more it is important to take the photo on an "eye-to-eye level"with the flowers you are taking the picture of. Another Advice:is to move away from the object. Taking photos from different angles or different distances from the objects helps you find the best possible lighting.In addition"Don´t get impatient!"
