Behind The Lens

Location
This photo is one of my favourites as well. This photo was taken at the Ottawa Tulip Festival.
Time
This photo was taken at 12:00 noon, an unusual time for me to photograph. My intentions were to go sightseeing rather than to take pictures because the humidity was oppressively hot. I took my camera gear anyway.
Lighting
The only item used for lighting was my on-board flash for highlighting the front of the tulip, the rest was so natural. The crowds kept the background quite dark which made this tulip shot just shot just softly pop. I was hooked after reviewing the shot, and ended up spending over 1 hour with different tulips and angles.
Equipment
This was shot with a Nikon D5300, AF-S NIKKOR 55-300mm 1:4.5-5.6 GED , Manfrotto tripod.
Inspiration
I was inspired to take this photo because I had never seen double tulips before, and the colours were simply amazing Some of the tulips were rimmed in cranberry colours, some were pink and green. I was in love everything about them.
Editing
Very little post processing was done. There was a light crop on the left of the frame blocking out the edge of a red tulip, that’s all.
In my camera bag
Nikon D5300, AF-S NIKKOR 55-300mm 1:4.5-5.6 GED , Manfrotto tripod. AF-P NIKKOR 10-20mm 1:4.5-5.6G, and AF-S NIKKOR 35mm1:1.8G, extra batteries
Feedback
Take a picture because you love the subject, and then stay and work every angle until you’re exhausted . You will find that there are many photos that will be worthy to show.
