Stunning capture.

Behind The Lens

Location
About 90-min drive up north of Sydney, this coastal suburb called The Entrance. Everyday at 3:30pm, there's a pelican feed show by the water. The pelicans would gather around and wait for their meals!
Time
The pelican feed happens everyday at 3:30pm. It was during the winter time so the sun is setting hence given more shadow.
Lighting
Although I don't have control over what time of the day I want to shoot, it was a great spot when I snap this. the sun light was spot on on the pelican, not in the shadow of the nearby trees of people.
Equipment
I used Canon 6D, with EF 100mm f/2.8L
Inspiration
How the pelicans lining up to wait for their meals was pretty interesting! I was lucky to have this shot out of so many snaps! because they were moving a lot trying to catch a fish.
Editing
Not much post-processing needed, I only adjusted the contrast.
In my camera bag
I normally have my Canon 6D, and 2 lens: 16-35mm f/2.8 and 100mm f/2.8. remote shutter and big stopper.
Feedback
I guess you'd have a find a group of pelican first! :p If you even come across a pelican feed show, try to move around to find the best angel and don't be afraid to move closer!
