Very precious. My husband LOVED this shot. It is really adorable. Everyone including animals needs a little snuggle time once in awhile.

Behind The Lens

Edgar's Mission Farm Sanctuary (Australia)
Afternon (Golden hour :) )
I have been experimenting with backlighting for a few weeks and it gives the most beautiful golden glow at the right time of the sunset.
Canon 1DX, 200mm f2
I wanted to show the love and kindness between animals complimented by the warmth of the light at that time of day.
increased saturation and contrast, vignetting and radial gradient.
In my camera bag
Canon 1DX, 24-70 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8 IS USM II, canon 16-35mm f2.8 II, canon 135mm f2, canon 100mm macro.
Try photographing in the afternoon sun just before the sunset. Use a telephoto lens if possible because you don't want the overblown highlights from the sky and light effecting the shot and the metering. Use spot metering on your subject for the correct exposure and darken the background in post production. Be patient, experiment and have fun :)
