Behind The Lens

Location
Cayman Islands
Time
11am
Lighting
It was harsh light, bright sunny day
Equipment
Nikon D800, 300mm lens
Inspiration
I wanted to get a good shot of a sea turtle as there were several swimming around each other. I took hundreds of pictures trying to get as much out of the water reflections as I could get out of a decent angle of the turtle.
Editing
I did my usual lightroom adjustments on contrast, clarity, saturation, etc.
In my camera bag
Nikon D800, Nikon D850, Nikon F5, Nikon FM2, Mamiya RB67ProSD Medium Format 6x7, GoPro Camera's,Prisim, Gear360, Sykik and several types of lenes
Feedback
Stay with it don't give up if you want to get that shot. This was my second day trying to get a shot of a Sea turtle that I liked. I took several hundred pictures and eventually got one I was pleased with.
