Behind The Lens

Location
I took the Photo at an SSI location on the North Northumberland coast near Berwick upon Tweed in the UK.
Time
It was mid afternoon and very warm
Lighting
It was very bright with harsh sunlight with some dappled clouds
Equipment
Shot on a Canon 5DMK2 with a 17-40mm zoom Taken hand held and a slow shutter speed 1/4 f22 @ iso 50 focal length 26mm I also had a Polarising filter fitted and a soft ND.9 Graduation filter to help with the highlights but after some experimenting found that the polarising filter did the best on its own. shot in RAW file format with final edit on the PC in Canon DPP software and PS Elements file size was 10mb as only shot at med raw (only had one card left) always bring enough empty cards as you never know what you may be presented with
Inspiration
I had been spending time photographing some Bluebells that weren't blue they were either Pink or White and in doing so spotted the bee's tracking thru the flowers and wondered what it would be like to photograph this flight so experimented with varying exposures to find what worked.I took several angles but finally settled on this one as my favorite as the patterns and lighting were more even throughout the Image(the white streaks are the lighter coloured bluebells.
Editing
Raw file with Initial process in Canon DPP and then some final tone contrast in PS Elements but mostly in camera and straightening up using the crop tool
In my camera bag
I have only zoom lenses as they cover a range without the extra weight which are Canon 5D MK2 camera, 17-40mm Canon l series f2.8 , Sigma 70-200 f 2.8 , Canon 150-500mm zoom and a Tamron 90mm Macro .I have a Hi-tech graduation filter system with (105mm) a circular polarising filter fitted to avoid vignetting. I rarely use flash prefering to work with natural light and also have a Manfrotto light tripod carbon fibre. Cable release, Head torch, warmish finger gloves with flip off ends for access to controls and spare camera batteries and cards ( on this occasion had only a couple of cards and ran out!). All my gear is second hand with the exception of the Tamron 90mm which I bought new and never regretted as it is very sharp
Feedback
Just experiment work with the light take some test shots either put on a tripod if the item is moving and let it paint the picture onto your Camera or if its static then you have to make the camera move look for patterns before you start and pick a good contrasty subject ie bright colours but pastels would work just as well .Its a bit like zoom burst but you leave the lense fixed and move the camera through the subject working with the maximum depth of field you can maybe play with the iso rating as well, you would have to choose based on the subject what works the best.
