Behind The Lens

I took this photo in a park in Lisbon.
It was about 2 PM.
It was a blazing hot day but this little flower grew in the shade of a fountain. The water reflected the light beautiful.
I only have a Lumix DMC TZ100, all my photo's are taken with this little miracle of a camera... It shows that you don't need an expensive camera with a lot of equipment to take photo's of good quality, The best thing of this camera is that it is very easy to take with you, because it practically fits in your backpocket. I am saving money to buy something professional though, because it will open new possibilities for sure and I am always looking for new challenges.
I saw this little daisy like flower growing out of a fountain wall and tried to make a nice macro of it. The cool colors were a nice contrast to the blazing hot day it was.
I did a little post-processing with Lightroom, cropping, contrast and a bit of color enhancing.
In my camera bag
I don't have any equipment in my bag (yet) I am a beginning photographer and I am learning to use a camera, to look for the good light, composition and point of view. One day when I know how to use and set the camera well enough, I will start to think about a bag filled with technical things instead of the need to understand how it works first...
If you look at a subject to photograph, you have to try to realise what you want to achieve, Try to find the good light, the right point of view and the best composition... And most of all, take more shots with slightly different settings so you can choose the best one, once you get home and open your laptop when the magic of today's digital world begins... I allways crop it later into the size and composition I like best. Crop the photo in different ways, so you can choose the best one the next day when you can have a fresh look at them!
