Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at a farm where kids can meet animals. The farm is is Westervoort, The Netherlands.
Time
16.28, a great afternoon with the sun peeking between the heavy clouds.
Lighting
The sun provided the rimlight. One bare Yongnuo YN560-III, above/front of the piggie, on 1/4. Triggered with a Yongnuo RF-603CII
Equipment
Canon 6D Sigma 28mm 2.8 Yonguo YN560-III Yongnuo RF-603CII No tripod, just a little luck
Inspiration
The little piggie (no bigger than 60 cm/2 ft) was very interested in what I was doing. (flashing a pair of ducks between the eyes) As it aproached me I made three photo's and this was the most vivid one.
Editing
I darkened the sky around the piggie a little to balance the photo a bit.
In my camera bag
The same stuff as described before, with some additional flashes. Some stands, two cardboard/gaffertaped snoots, a multi pupose clamp to rig a flash. Sometimes a couple of umbrellas reflective and shoot-through. two or three lenses, always the 28 mm, a 50 mm 1.8 Canon, sometimes a Sigma 70-200 mm 2.8
Feedback
Be patient. Be patient. Talk to animals. Ignore people looking at you in a funny way while you are doing it. Always bring a wireless flash and use it everywhere. Use a small aperture (9-16) and a low ISO (100-200) Oh, be patient. Observing closely is both fun and rewarding.
