Behind The Lens

The photo was made in my closest neighborhood, as all the houses have gardens and display some interesting botanical varieties.
Date/Time of the shot was 15-May-18 11:33:48
Here's what was recorded: 1/400 sec, f/5.6, ISO 100, 0.00 eV, Metering Mode: Pattern, Flash Off, Focal Length: 64.5 mm and White Balance at Auto (Daylight)
NIKON Model COOLPIX P610 was at hand...
Simply, it was the sheer beauty of the rose. What else would one need?
It is pretty much straight out of the camera, bar some slight cropping to correct the framing.
In my camera bag
For decades already I find it easier to carry a photo vest than any photo bag to take along whatever I want or need for my photo session, walk or trip. My photo bags usually stay home or in the car to keep the equipment I'm not using at the moment. My tripod has its permanent place in the car. The vest pockets usually contain two cameras, one of those is always waterproof. Sometimes I'll carry a small action camera, mainly for its wide field of view and resistance to water and weather. Other pockets keep the spare batteries, ND and CPL filters, and one small camera clamp which can be fixed to anything around, and in many cases can replace a tripod. The vest has pockets for longer lenses that usually hold a small water bottle, a sandwich, or a bar of chocolate - if I plan on being out for the whole day. I always pack about three meters length of paracord or similar strong, thin rope, one hefty pocket knife, and a lighter. Much can be improvised with these, so that's all I need. Recently I made it even easier, and take the essentials along in a waist pouch; a variable-volume McKinley. Simplicity and comfort are two best qualities for me in the Outdoors!
Like always, the basest of advices will apply: 1) ALWAYS have a camera (ANY camera) at hand, and 2) develop enough curiosity to visually comment on anything you find interesting and beautiful. Gods know we need all the beautiful sights we can get!
