Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo outside of my girlfriends dads house. She wanted me to take pictures of the litter for her to post free kittens on facebook. It worked, this one got most of the attention and found a good home!
Time
This photo was taken at 4:00pm
Lighting
This one was so fluffy i wanted use backlighting to show that off. It worked well highlighting his long hairs and making a nice outline of him.
Equipment
I used a Sony A99 camera with a Sony 70-400mm lens at 200mm. This was a handheld shot at 1/400 of a sec. at f/6.3 iso 320 and no flash and no filter.
Inspiration
When i was asked to take these photos so these kittens could find a good home it got me very excited, and inspired me to take this photo.
Editing
I used lightroom to bring out some highlights and shadows, and convert to black and white.
In my camera bag
Sony A99, Sony 70-400mm, 85mm zeiss, 100mm Minolta macro,and a 16-80mm zeiss
Feedback
Just have patience and try different angles in the light. This one took a while not only to get him in the right light but to get him sitting and looking at me. I had my camera set in hi continuous shooting mode that helped to catch the shot i was looking for.
