Behind The Lens

The photo was taken in Toronto along lake Ontario.
I remember that my future fiancé and I were walking together in May 2014 when we saw cute baby ducks. It was around 4 p.m. when lighting wasn't so harsh.
As I mentioned lightning wasn't so harsh as it was cloudy day with some natural lightning - sun rays are the best light ever.
This one was shot on Canon 60D with Tamron lens 70-300mm. I was literally speaking laying down on my belly to get this capture.
I fell in love and everything including season (it was spring) was saying - love is in air!
I didn't do much only highlighted contrast a bit.
In my camera bag
The first thing I usually pack is Canon 70D or Canon 5D Mark II. They are my main cameras but some time ago I tried Fuji X100T and I love it! Amazing camera for street photography! Depends on my photo destination I may pick up 11- 16mm Tokina lens for landscaping or 70-300mm Tamron lens for the wild life. Also I love challenging myself with a prime lens for street shots. Probably 40mm is my favorite.
Patience. A lot of patience. Did I mention patience? Whenever you shot the wild life you should be ready for any kind of weather conditions. Recently I was bitten by mosquitos so now I always carry anti mosquito spray:) Good luck!
