Behind The Lens

I took this at the NCC Greenbelt known as Old Quarry Trail in Kanata, Ontario about 2 miles from my house. I usually go there a couple of times a week
This would have been early in the morning when there is more movement of deer
The lighting here was terrible as it was overcast but dark and they were deep in the forest so not much light filtered through plus there were many branches in front of me so it took some time to find a clear shot.
I handhold my camera which is the Canon 7D and Canon 70-200 2.8 lens...no flash
I've been frequenting this forest for over 7 years where you can find bucks and fawns (I love deer) as well as porcupine, coyote and owls
Post processing was minimally done. The only thing I did was bring up the exposure, add some contrast and a touch of unsharp mask
In my camera bag
When I head to the woods I usually carry my Canon 7D and Canon 70-200 2.8 lens plus a bottle of water as I'm usually out for many hours.
Only advice I could give is head out early in the morning or late in the afternoon when the light is the best and the deer are the most active. If deer are present make your precence known. I usually talk to them or start singing, I know that sounds odd but it works for me. Walk slowly in a zigzag pattern so you are not walking directly towards them. Last piece of advice is if their ears are folded back I usually toss my hat in the air and their ears turn forward making a much better photo.
