Behind The Lens

Location
A group of us had taken a tour of south eastern Tasmania, the last stop before the Antarctica. We travelled for half an hour viewing the spectacular scenery and wildlife, when the Skipper stopped the boat and alerted us that an estimated 300 dolphins were heading towards us. We were surrounded by dolphins flying, leaping and swimming alongside us on our journey. It was the most incredible and wonderful experience I have ever encountered.
Time
We set off around 7am in the morning for a half day tour of the east coast of Tasmania.
Lighting
We were blessed to have a perfect day for capturing this wonderful wildlife on camera. The sun was in the perfect position, and it was a blessing for us to have hundreds of dolphins prancing around our boat. Something I don't believe I will ever see again.
Equipment
I used my Sony a500 camera to capture this Dolphin. There was little warning of these dolphins coming alongside the boat, and we all had to take as many photos as we could with the settings we had, or else we would miss such activity and wonder with these magnificent animals.
Inspiration
I had never seen a Dolphin before, except in the media, and this was a dream come true for me. Something that will be etched in my memory for the rest of my life. I took around 300 photos in the time we had with these Dolphins.
Editing
Because the water was rocking the boat around a little, we had to shoot as many photos as we could, there was no room for tripods on the small boat. The only post processing I did was cropping and sharpening the photos.
In my camera bag
I usually carry a tripod and spare lens in my bag, but on this occasions I was limited to luggage because of the size of the boat and the number of people on board.
Feedback
The advice I would give, if I was lucky enough to see this again, would be to take a little time before snapping your camera, and take a clearer a photo as is possible in the circumstances.
