Behind The Lens

Location
In Italy
Time
After lunch time, on our holiday in Italy, we went to our room. The sun was high - it was 14:16 at end of August - and I decided to take a picture of my son who was playing on his smartphone on the balcony. He does not want to be photographed, so I had to be very careful
Lighting
The sun was high, so lighting was clear but no sunlight on my son's head. This was ideal
Equipment
Nikon D5000 with a Nikon 18-55mm lens
Inspiration
I'm always looking to get some snapshot, to freeze a special moment, a moment of inattention. In this situation, my son was busy to play on his smartphone and so I took my camera and decided to shot him from above to avoid any background and to get the reflection of his body in his sunglasses.
Editing
I decided for a b&w version with selected color to empasize the sunglasses. Then I sharpened the sunglasses and darkend the borders
In my camera bag
Before, my Nikon D5000 with an 18-55mm and a 70-300 mm lens. Now I take my Nikon D750 with a 50 mm lens, a 70-300 lens and a 28-70 mm lens. Depending on where I go, I exchange my 50mm with a 100 mm Macro lens. A small Tripod with a remote control
Feedback
My focus was the sunglasses. I chosed for a small aperture (f.5,6) to get the focus on the face only
