Beautiful :)

Behind The Lens

I took this photo in a wood near my living place (Lyon).
At the morning, during a beautiful spring morning (at 10.19 am of April to be more precise). :)
The main source of light is providing from the sun itself. The light is quite smooth because it was filtered by the trees which it avoided me to have some hard shadows and lights on my subject.
Always my favorite couple : - Canon EOS 80D - Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
When I saw this little flower alone and surrounded by all of this high grass I approached it. I immediately noticed that there was a way to make good use of it because the light was beautiful and the subject was well highlighted. I remembered some nice photos of flowers taken by other photographers and because it's a little bit the subject in spring, I wanted to have my own flower picture.
Little post-processing on this image : I worked on the white balance, increased the overall brightness a little and also accentuated the sharpness of the flower to make it stand out better.
In my camera bag
I always have my EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM because I always use it for the style of photos I like ; the proxy and macro photography. And now I can add my new Canon lens : Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM. But I like to pack my Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM simply because between the moment I leave my car and the moment I'm at the place I wanted to be, I walk and during this time I often see beautiful landscapes around me. I also always have my Tripod (ALTA PRO 263AB 100) which is useful when I need stability.
I'll write the same feedback I always give which are : • Open your eyes and observe a lot around you. • Try to imagine how the light and its reflection could help you in the construction of your image and in the emphasis of the subject. • Dont' forget the background when you find your subject. It will add shapes, shadows, colors in your image and help in the composition. • Look how the light react on your subject, which angle is better for your image. • Be at the height of you subject, it gives good point of view and help your composition. • Look for inspiration, observe what people you follow are doing and how are they doing this little thing you like in the picture. • Enjoy your trip, even if you come back with nothing in your camera, you had a great time and you exercised yourself.
