Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken during one of my daily morning walks on the beach in Ocean Ridge, FL
Time
It was taken on December 30th, 2015 at 7:03 am
Lighting
This was taken during sunrise, natural light by the beach
Equipment
All I use is my I phone 6 plus at the time, no other special equipment
Inspiration
These creatures have a beautiful, and brilliant array of colors. I just love the way they reflect the light depending on the angle to decide to take the photo.
Editing
Most of my photographs on my I phone are kept in their original format, however, I wanted to play with this particular photo with the lighting. Too be honest, I don't remember how I did it, I know that I was experimenting with a new app on photoshop for iphones. In other words, by accident.
In my camera bag
My iphone and nothing else.
Feedback
My advice is to try getting as many pics as possible, from different angles, with the sun in front of it, behind it, from the side and try to put focus on the subject only/ We all know that anyone can snap a picture, however, you must put your heart and soul on every shot and let your passion shine through your photographs.
