Beautiful photo.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Espoo at Laajalahti bay.
Time
I was out early in the morning mainly birding but I always carry my camera with me. I visited one observation tower by the bay about 10 AM. Soon after that I heard Blue Tit chick begging for food by coming partly out from the nest box. I had lots of time to take several pictures of this cute tit.
Lighting
Actually the light was pretty bad because the box was partly in sunshine and partly in the shadow. So I had to overexpose quite a lot to get the chick in good light. At home I used Lightroom to correct both the shadow and bright parts of the image.
Equipment
I used Canon EOS 5D Mark III with canon 400 mm/5.6
Inspiration
Well it was just a great opportunity to take this photo because the chick was active all the time and I was in the tower about the same level as the nest box was.
Editing
At home I used Lightroom to correct both the shadow and bright parts of the image to get a better balance between the upper and under part of the image.
In my camera bag
At that time I had always Canon EOS 5D Mark III with Canon 400 mm/5.6. But on a longer trip I took also Canon 7D with lenses 100 mm and a small zoom. Today I have Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II, M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm 1:2.8 PRO, M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm 1:2.8 PRO and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300mm 1:4.0 IS PRO.
Feedback
When photographing birds you have to be ready any time anywhere because you always need some luck to be in the right place at the right time.
