Perfect ????

Behind The Lens

Location
The image was shot in a very small hide tucked away in a friends back garden.
Time
The shot was taken at around 13:30.
Lighting
Despite freezing conditions the light from the afternoon sun was rather pleasant.
Equipment
Canon 5D Mk2 with a Tamron 70 - 300mm (Hand held)
Inspiration
I basically got an invite from a friend who lives in the New Forest who (at the time) was getting frequent visits to his garden of the little Vixen in question. It was an offer that I could simply not refuse.
Editing
Apart from a little saturation and clarity added to the piece this image is more or less straight off the camera.
In my camera bag
Canon 5D MK2 - Tamron 70-300mm - Sigma 105mm 2.8 - Canon 24-105mm -Sigma 150 - 600mm - Various Filters - Rogue Flashbenders - Sekonic Light Meter - x2 Canon Speedlites - Pocket Wizard Mini TT1 & Flex TT5 - Various Memory Cards - Camera User Manuel (never leave home without it) - Cleaning Cloth x4 - Sensor cleaning kit - Various AA Batteries - Spare Camera Battery - Lens Cleaning Pens - Rocket Blow Duster -
Feedback
To be a very patience person is always a big help in any type of wildlife photography. Homework!!....Find out as much information as possible in your quest....Local knowledge from people, friends and the like and don't forget the WWW. as there's a wealth of knowledge these days on the net which can be so helpful. Learn as much as possible about what type of Animal you wish to shoot in reference to it's behaviour..Learn your Camera settings.
