Behind The Lens

Location
In my daughter's garden, in East Lansing, Michigan, US
Time
late afternoon
Lighting
I took advantage of the late afternoon light which imparted a delicate tone to the scene.
Equipment
Nikon D700 and Nikkor macro lens 105mm
Inspiration
When my daughter gave birth to her first child I joined her in the US. I live in Portugal, my homeland. One afternoon, when my daughter was breastfeeding her baby, I felt compelled to go outside and try to capture something that could transmit the sweet emotion building up inside of me. It was springtime and that bud and newborn flower suddenly captured my attention.
Editing
I corrected the white balance, since the auto option in the camera doesn't work very well at sunset, and the contrast.
In my camera bag
I probably spend most amount of time in the field shooting with the Nikon 24-70mm lens and that's what I normally have in my bag in order to avoid weight.
Feedback
I took this photograph with my heart, not with my camera. I need love to succeed in every area.
