Behind The Lens

Location
We went to collect strawberries on a field near our house. on the way there we stopped on the field and I took this photograph. I am a self taught photographer and I shoot always outside as I don't have a studio.
Time
It was a hot summer day, after the girls came back from school we had to wait a bit, so that we would not be in the full sun. But we couldn't wait longer to get those delicious strawberries. 3 p.m.
Lighting
As we wer under direct sun light I looked for some shadow which we found under a tree. I didn't needa reflector as the path we were walking on was made from beige stones which reflected beautifully the light back at the girls faces. this was sho
Equipment
this was shot on a Nikon D3300 with a 50mm lens on manual focus.
Inspiration
I wanted to get a beautiful memory of my daughters friendship with her best friend. they know each other since they are 1 year old and this was kind of the last time to stop time before the become young ladies.
Editing
yes, I did do some dodge and burn, specially on the hair and the eyes, then I used a filter from my Alien Skin palette to get that nostalgic look.
In my camera bag
I have most of the time only my Nikon D3300 with my 50 mm 1.8G and maybe a small polyboard reflector.
Feedback
while photographing children just make sure that you get all you need quiet fast, as you tend to loose their attention quickly. Also make sure that their faces are on the same panel and never go under f 5.6 in order to get them both sharp.
