Thank You so much.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo one day as I was walking to my car and the leaves had started to fall. This one caught my eye.
Time
I captured this image in the morning time as I was walking to my car. The morning light was just stunning.
Lighting
This image was taken in the beautiful morning light. It really brought out the patterns in the leaf.
Equipment
I took this image with my Samsung S 5 Active. Even though I have other cameras and lens it was the one I had on me at the time. I get asked all the time what is the best camera. My answer is, the one you have with you now.
Inspiration
Of all the leaves in the yard there was just something about this one. It had the best shape and texture and pattern to it of all the leaves around.
Editing
The post-processing on this image was an added texture and color to the background.
In my camera bag
I normally have a canon 5D MII with a 50mm lens, 100mm macro 2.8 and a 24-70 2.8
Feedback
The best advice I can give you is to always keep your eyes open for that next capture. If you see something that catches your eye take the shot. To many times I have let something slip by me without capturing it. Early mornings and late evening are your best light for capturing textures and pattens in objects.
