Behind The Lens

Location
I’ve taken this picture at the vast landscape at the Kalahari desert in Namibia.
Time
I was super lucky, that I had the opportunity to take the shot at the beginning golden hour.
Lighting
This was a unique and extraordinary moment and experience for me to get that close to one of the fastest land animals. I spent almost one hour with the cheetah and learned a little bit more about their animal behavior.
Equipment
This handheld shot was taken with my Canon R5 and the superb RF100-500.
Inspiration
The inspiration for this photo was the animal and its behavior at the las sunrays of a day.
Editing
I’ve only get a little bit of saturation at post processing, along wit a small amount of sharpening.
In my camera bag
You can find several Canon lenses, starting from the rf35, the RF16-35, the RF24-105 and for sure the incredible RF100-500. Normally I’ve got some filters in the bag as well, as some blocks of spare batteries and cards.
Feedback
Be patient, enjoy the waiting and witnessing this beautiful creatures…and … don’t forget to lay down your cam and inhale this experience to be so close to such amazing animals with both eyes.
