Behind The Lens

Location
This shot was taken at a duck farm inside a shed housing 4000, one day old ducklings.
Time
It was the middle of the day - but inside a shed.
Lighting
Lighting was tricky. As these little guys were only 24 hours old and in artificial light that wasn't so bright, I was hesitant to use a flash. I had to experiment a few times to get just the right setting. Setting used was ISO1250, Focal Length 24mm, Aperture f/4, Shutter Speed 1/40.
Equipment
Hand held Canon EOS 600D with 24-105mm f/4 L IS Lens. No Flash
Inspiration
The magnitude of 4000, 24 hours old ducklings that had never seen humans before was amazing.
Editing
Just cropping
In my camera bag
Camera. Lens,spare battery, spare filter, cleaning cloth.
Feedback
Just experiement with setting in low light.
