Behind The Lens

Location
Boston Zoo
Time
Mid-Morning
Lighting
Lighting was very difficult due to being indoors/outdoors but the apes themselves in a somwhat shaded area. Also trying to take a shot through dirty glass also presented an issue. Aperture: f/4.0 ISO: 2000 Exposure: 1/100
Equipment
Canon EOS REBEL T2i
Inspiration
I was watching the interaction between this mother and baby gorilla and I was moved by how they had such a wonderful connection between them. I really wanted to capture a moment that we see even as humans with our own relationships between a parent and baby.
Editing
I sharpened it a bit. It was hard to take this shot due to the grubby glass I was shooting through.
In my camera bag
Camera, my every day lens, 18-55 and 55-250mm. Cleaning supplies.
Feedback
Patience and be aware of the animals. There was nothing special I did but watch. It was the creatures I took the photo of that were what made this magical.
