I have seen a lot of balloon shots, but never as creative as this.

Behind The Lens

Location
Annual balloon launch in Erie, Colorado
Time
Early!
Lighting
Perfect lighting as balloon opening was opposite rising sun and sun was highlighting outside of rising balloon.
Equipment
Canon 5th Mark III with 14 mm wide lens.
Inspiration
Colors and lighting
Editing
No much - added a little saturation and cleaned up a few blemishes on the balloon.
In my camera bag
Depends on where I'm headed. In this case, a 14 mm wide lens, 24-70 zoom, and a 70-200 telephoto.
Feedback
Look for the light. Colors are always attention -getting. Look for unique perspectives.
