Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo at Westfield Heritage Village in Hamilton (Rockton). Westfield Heritage Village is a stunning collection of over 30 historical buildings which has made Westfield one of the most interesting historical destinations in Hamilton.
Time
This photo was taken in the afternoon, in the month of May.
Lighting
The lighting was all natural for this photo.
Equipment
I just used my Canon EOS REBEL T3i to take this photo.
Inspiration
I took many photos on the day I took this one. We were out exploring Westfield Heritage Village in Hamilton and to my delight there was lots of interesting things to photograph.
Editing
Yes, I did some tweaking in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. First I always like to straighten and crop my photos. Typically if I have taken a decent shot with the camera, I will usually adjust the highlights, shadows, whites, blacks and clarity if need be. I also tend to tweak the vibrancy and saturation, and then I adjust the sharpening and noise reduction. Obviously with this shot I wanted more of a vintage look so I processed in black and white.
In my camera bag
I typically carry 3 cameras in my bag. A Canon EOS REBEL T3i, Canon EOS REBEL T2i and my Waterproof Canon Powershot D20 cameras. I also have 3 lens I carry, an 18 mm, a 55 mm, and 250 mm lens. I also have my Canon Speedlite 430EX II. I always carry a minimum of 4 fully charged batteries for either the cameras or for the flash and I also have a battery charger with me just in case. I carry a polarizing filter, a little water spray bottle, lens cleaners and a remote for the cameras. It would be nice to travel a little lighter, but I do want to try and be prepared, just in case that photo opportunity does present itself. Mind you, I do realize I need to start bringing my tripod out with me more.
Feedback
My advice is to always have a camera on hand, you just never know when a Kodak moment will present itself. Always try to be observant and respectful of your surroundings and nature. Soak in all the natural and manmade beauty that surrounds us. If you just stop and really take a look, you will see that there is beauty all around us. If I find something I am inspired to shoot, I try playing with the settings and angles of the shot. I can take several shots of a single scene, with an adjustment here and there, or shoot from another perspective. As an amateur photographer I am constantly trying to develop my eye and skills. Most of all I just recommend that you just have fun with your camera and your surroundings!
