Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in the Tadoba Tiger Reserve, Central India. While on a safari in the reserve.
Time
Late morning.
Lighting
Thick leaf cover diffused the harsh sunlight making it good for a nice background bokeh and enough light to freeze motion.
Equipment
Canon 1DX with a Canon 600mm prime telephoto lens, mounted on a gimbal head.
Inspiration
The interaction of the birds as we waited for tigers to show up. Though tigers are the star of the day, such moments are equally enchanting
Editing
Not much PP done. Lifted the shadows a bit and corrected color to adjust white balance.
In my camera bag
2 Pro SLR bodies, one with 70-200 and another with the 600 telephoto. A 24-70 for landscapes.
Feedback
Keep an eye on the surrounding forests to catch candid moments that make the wildlife interesting. Sometimes cool images come from the most common subjects and not that elusive big predator.
