Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken an a weekend on my balcony as a part of decoration for breakfast.
Time
It was a sunny bright morning.
Lighting
Because of the bright light i was sitting underneath a sun umbrella. So i had a big softbox.
Equipment
It was shot an a Canon 700D with the great sigma 105mm macro lens handheld.
Inspiration
After enjoying my breakfast i saw this tender flower with a pastell pink look. I usually like bright bold colors but in this case i wanted to capture this softness.
Editing
I did some basic raw processing like sharpening light toning and cropping. I always try to do as less post-processing as possible.
In my camera bag
I'm always trying to keep my Equipment als simple als possible. So i force myself to be creative with the point of view. But when i'm travelling i use the Canon 18-135mm an my phantastic plastic 50mm 1.8 prime lens. So i'm able to take pictures from wideagle to a light zoom. The 50mm prime is great for urban street photography even in lowlight. Other basic stuff are battery packs my cleaning set and memorycards. On other missions i'm packing my macro lens, my flashlight, tripod, ND filters etc.
Feedback
If you want to shoot flowers outside don't shoot at bright sunlight an watch for the wind. Shooting macros or closeups outside can be tricky.
