I used photoshop to add in the dos equis bottle after the shot. This shot was too fun to not play around with. Thanks for your peer recognition and for your interest in this photo.

Great shot

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was shot from my back patio looking out into the corner of my yard.
Time
This is a mid morning shot. The sun was just cresting above the horizon.
Lighting
The lighting was natural sunlight.
Equipment
I shot this Photo with my Canon 60D and my EF 70-300mm zoom. It was handheld while at the window.
Inspiration
I have an innate love for nature and all the critters around my area. I spend hours looking for opportunities to get decent shots like this.
Editing
After the shot, I added the Dos Equis bottle to his hands via photoshop and I also added a blur effect in photoshop. He was posed in a manner that reminded me of the commercials for Dos Equis.
In my camera bag
During the time of this shot, I carried my kit lens and my 70-300mm zoom. Now I almost exclusively carry my Sigma 50mm f1.4 art lens and my Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 zoom. I also carry a 430ex flash and a tripod for some more stable shots. I am a single camera owner at this time some my Canon 60d is always strapped to my back via a trekking dual camera/binoculars harness.
Feedback
Carry your camera everywhere. If you don't have it, you can't get the picture. While you may be able to spot your target easily, they may only stop in a nice position for a short span of time, so keep your gear close at all times if you are looking for "the shot". Learn to use today's software. With all the new features in photoshop and lightroom its hard to keep up, but they are both super powerful for editing your shots. Look to the web for inspiration and techniques if you have something in your head that you want to reproduce.
