Beautiful

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken near our farm in Bowen, part of the beautiful Whitsundays in Australia.
Time
We took this photo at my favourite time of the day, the hour before sunset.
Lighting
I am a fan of natural lighting, this one is all lit by the late afternoon sun, positioning your subject in the right spot to take advantage of the light is of course, a good idea.
Equipment
Taken with my Nikon 3100 camera, a 35mm wide angle lens at f1.8, no flash or tripod or other equipment.
Inspiration
I was inspired by my daughter is who is a very agile dancer, and also by Viewbug for running the ballerinas and dancers contest. Her leap was so good, I also entered it into the levitation contest.
Editing
I always check my photos in lightroom, not too much was necessary in this photo though, I think I may have lightened a couple of shadows.
In my camera bag
Just my Nikon 3100 camera, two spare lenses, 35mm and a 70-200mm zoom, and spare SD cards.
Feedback
A graceful subject was the most important factor, then I would recommend late afternoon light. A low camera angle makes the most of those leaps, and some contrast in colours between the clothing and background is a good idea.
