Behind The Lens

Location
White Rock, BC
Time
4:24 PM, 1st day of autumn.
Lighting
It was an overcast day with heavy cloud cover.
Equipment
Nikon D700, Nikkor AF-S VR 70-200mm F2.8 IF-ED zoom lens. I did not use a tripod, flash or any other equipment.
Inspiration
I went out to a local saltwater tidal estuary near my home on the 1st day of fall to photograph cranes that regularly visit this area. As I approached one of the cranes for a closer shot, it became startled and decided to fly off in the opposite direction to where I was standing. A duck in the nearby underbrush hearing of the racket that the crane had made, became alarmed but this time it flew directly in front of me. I panned on the bird to freeze the bird allowing the background to become a blur. By panning on the bird, it gave me a sense of what the world must look like from a bird's perspective.
Editing
I used Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 to boost the colors and the contrast.
In my camera bag
I typically take all of my equipment on a photo shoot - Nikkor 14-28mm zoom lens, Nikkor 105mm macro, Nikkor 70-200mm zoom lens, Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-17E 1.7X, Manfrotto 190CXPEO4 tripod, and Nikon Speedlight SB-910 flash.
Feedback
When photographing birds in the wild, be patient. Anticipate where the birds will be and have your camera and gear set up to take the picture that you want to capture the moment.
