Behind The Lens

Location
This image was captured on the edge of a wheat field in Ripley Ontario, Canada.
Time
To be honest it was probably the worst time of day to be shooting , it was around 2 in the afternoon, very bright with just enough cloud to diffuse sunlight.
Lighting
basically the clouds and bright light gave an almost soft box effect, pretty even lighting despite the time of day.
Equipment
To be completely honest this was shot with the first camera I ever owned. I used a Nikon D5200 with the kit 18-55. I always use manual, aperture or shutter priority which gives me more control over the final outcome.
Inspiration
It was a warm breezy day and the wind in the wheat along with it blowing her hair gave all the elements for a great image. I asked her to look at the wheat and this gave me the time to compose and shoot. Luckily I had an incredible model.
Editing
I do adjust the usual white balance, light, shadow etc. I also adjust the color and remove any sensor dust etc that may be present within the image.
In my camera bag
I usually use natural light. Within any given day there is an incredible variation of sunlight available along with the many options you have to manipulate it as you please. Light is just as ample and varied as photographic subjects themselves, use it to your advantage.
Feedback
I think my biggest piece of advice is to give honest consideration the image you are intent on capturing. Think of all of the variables, think of how you can use them to set the scene. Once that is done, forget about the technical aspects and use your instincts to capture the best possible moment of the subject before you. Do not get wrapped up in the photography games. Gear helps, location helps and subject helps, but in reality your personal commitment to learning the basic framework of photography along with how a camera works and applying your personal touch to the final capture is what will make your image beautiful and unique. Keep shooting and never stop learning, every pro was once just beginning.
