The word that came to mind when I saw this photo was "iconic," for some reason.

Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken during our summer vacation, in Peloponnese, Greece. This is my son, who was watching some birds flying over the sea.

Time

It was around midday.

Lighting

The sun was high and the light was harsh. That's why the bold shadows and the heavy contrast

Equipment

The camera I used was the Pentax K50 with a Tamron 18-200 lens. It's a fantastic combination, which suits my everyday needs.

Inspiration

Kids are curious. My son was asking a lot of questions about anything and was curious about everything. At the time of the photo, he was admiring this flock of birds, who were flying all together in some sort of formation, like they were communicating in some way.

Editing

Besides the black and white conversion and the contrast adjustment, there was no other post processing.

In my camera bag

My trusty Pentax, a 50mm old manual Pentax lens, the 35mm f2.4 Pentax lens and the Tamron 18-200.

Feedback

Patience and luck. Or luck and patience.
