Behind The Lens

Location

I took this photo while I was on a lunch break walk. I love being in nature so this was as good as a nature spot I could get.

Time

It had just finished raining for three days straight. I was stuck at work and caught the rain just as it stopped for a mid noon lunch walk.

Lighting

As I was walking I noticed how beautifully the colors blended and meshed together to give it a perfect back drop focus. The colors from the fall leaves in Virginia really set this up for a successful picture.

Equipment

For this photograph I used my iPhone 11 and and a Macro lense attachment.

Inspiration

I remember thinking of different ideas to come up with the perfect picture. This was the first time I had tried doing this style and it really came together. Thanks to the beautiful fall colors of Virginia.

Editing

I usually use Lightroom on my phone for editing, but this phot I felt captured the colors in such a miraculous way. I didn’t feel the need to edit this. It’s 100% natural.

In my camera bag

I generally take my Canon T5i with me everywhere I go. I also have the trusty iPhone 11 for a back up just in case.

Feedback

I would have never gotten this shot if I stuck to my normal macro photography. Don’t be afraid to try new styles and techniques. Always think outside of the box to come up with new ways to get that perfect shot! Remember, there’s no such thing as a bad photograph. Your style is you and it’s always unique!
