Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was take in Queensland Australia, the dam had heaps of Lilies all around it, a couple of different colours and types.

Time

I think it was late morning not normally the best time for such a photo

Lighting

The day was perfect the clouds were heavy and dark so the sun was not strong.

Equipment

All I had was my camera, I couldn't uses my tripod, so squatting on the side of the dam trying to get as close as possible trying not to wobble and not to fall in. It was a bit of a challenge..

Inspiration

I guess the only inspiration was that it was there and the flowers were fantastic and I had my camera, what other inspiration is needed?

Editing

post-processing was almost nothing. I think I took 2-3 shots to get the light right as one does. It came out just right not even a touch up, just a little cropping that's about it.

In my camera bag

In my bag are my 2 lenses one always on the camera of course. about 6 filters and some close up lenses, and 3 standoffs poor man macros, I can't afford or justify buying a micro lens much as I would like some. not to forget my Flash it's a cheaper after market one but it works. I don't have much but that doesn't matter I just enjoy taking photos...

Feedback

Advice hmm I'm no pro not even close, I have to be honest I fluked the day it was a very cloudy day but warm funny enough so the little native bees were out as well which are in other photos I took that day, I was just out somewhere I had my camera. But low light is important, a sunny day would have not been so good. Evenings and early morning are best for photos like this. The other thing that is important is to have you camera with you, no camera no photo, after all it's the moment and the moment won't last and won't wait for you to get it.
