Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in my backyard around the pool while my wife and I were enjoying a beautiful summer day. My wife is my model in most of my shots as I am still learning to take better photographs
Time
We took this shot mid afternoon as the soon was just about straight overhead. I had taken several similar shots at different times of the day but this was the best time for the least amount of shadows.
Lighting
I was using trying different angles and different focal points in the shot to reduce the possibility of shadows.
Equipment
Just about all of my shots are with the Canon 80D with the Canon EF 50mm lens
Inspiration
I felt it was a perfect day for this type of shot, clear skies with very little clouds. I have seen many similar shots on Viewbug and wanted to practice this shot myself.
Editing
Yes, I always shoot in Raw, so I like to use Lightroom to fine tune and make any minor adjustments that are needed.
In my camera bag
I always carry my Canon 80D, and my favorite lens, the EF 85mm 1.8 lens. I also have the Canon EF 50mm and EFS 24mm lenses for portraits and the Canon EFS 18-135mm and EFS 10-18mm lenses for any landscape or zoomed images.
Feedback
Not that I am in position to give advise, but if I had to offer bit of advise for beginners, like myself, is to invest in fixed lens and work with that until you feel comfortable with your compensation and exposure.
