Same photographer See all

Behind The Lens

Location
Djuma Private Reserve, Sabi Sands, South Africa
Time
The shot was taken in bright sunlight at about 930 AM
Lighting
The bird was slightly back-lit which created some of the shadows.
Equipment
Canon 1D IV, Canon 400 DO with 1.4 extender
Inspiration
How could you not love that face ?
Editing
Post processing was basic, sharpening, working contrast etc. No cropping was done.
In my camera bag
At the time, Canon 7D, Canon Mark IV, Canon 100-400L, Canon 400 DO, Canon 70-200L
Feedback
When on safari, you never know what opportunities become available. This bird landed on a branch nearby and watched us take our morning break. S/he was a very curious bird
