SUPERB!!!

Behind The Lens

Location
In Tarangire NP, Tanzania in Feb 2013.
Time
We were on game drive about at 9.00 AM.
Lighting
No.
Equipment
Canon 5D Mark III with Canon 400mm/5.6., hand held because it's much faster when you take flight shots than tripod or bean bag.
Inspiration
I always try to get some action to my pictures. I don't really get excited in taking pictures of posing birds that's why I always wait if the bird might fly as this beautiful Lilac-breasted Roller did.
Editing
No.
In my camera bag
Nowaday I have Canon 5D Mark III with 400mm/5.6., 100mm/2.8 and 28-105 mm both Canon 7D.
Feedback
Be patient. Just be prepared with your camera when bird takes off. It's best to focus with your thumb and shoot with your forefinger, this way the focus should be almost always correct. If you do both focusing and shooting in the same button focus can easily go to the background.
