Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in my garden.
Time
Later in the afternoon.
Lighting
The sun was covered by thin clouds that softened the light and lessened the shadows and gave the image a dreamy look.
Equipment
I used my Nikon 3200 camera with 200 mm lens, free hand to be able to achieve the desired perspective and uncluttered background with shallow depth of field.
Inspiration
The magnolia shrub blooming in my front yard garden was very hard to ignore and literally screamed at me to take pictures.
Editing
I just added cooling filter and softened the focus to achieve dreamy look.
In my camera bag
I carry Nikon 3200 and Nixon 3500 camera bodies with 18mm-500 mm lens set, filters and tripod.
Feedback
When i shoot flowers I always aim for a shallow depth of field to simplify the background and bring out the subject int he foreground.
