Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at Crich Tramway Museum, they had a bird of prey exhibition on that day.
Time
The shot was taken around 11:00 am.
Lighting
Natural lighting was used.
Equipment
Equipment used: Canon 5D Mk1, Sigma 28-70mm F2.8 DG AF, Joby Pro Sling Strap and handheld.
Inspiration
I really like birds of prey and Owls, I was very lucky as the bird was looking straight at me.
Editing
The photo was edited in Lightroom, cropped and sharpened.
In my camera bag
At the time the photo was taken I normally carried in my Lowe Pro 400 AW Flipside : Canon 5DMk1, Sigma 28-70mm F2.8 DG Af, Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 APO EX DG, Yongnuo 560 Mk2 Flash, Monopod with legs, Cleaning kit, memory cards and spare batteries.
Feedback
I am self taught and all I can say is, takes as many shots as possible and at as many angles but just beware of the light and what is in the background. I have spent many hours watching YouTube videos and that is where I get all the info I need.
