Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in a local cemetery. Some photographer friends and I had found a domestic mother goose nesting so we would go over often to check on the progress of things. One morning we discovered a few of the goslings had hatched so we planted ourselves on the ground a safe distance away so as not to disturb the family and we just waited with our cameras in hand for something to happen. Suddenly mom lifted her wing to reveal her babies huddled inside trying to keep warm on the cool spring morning.
Time
This photo was taken in the morning when the spring air was still cool.
Lighting
This shot was taken around 9:30 or so in the morning early in May so the light wasn't harsh.
Equipment
This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 5D MarkII along with my Sigma150-500mm lens. I didn't use a tripod as I was lying on the ground and had steadied my camera on the surface as I wanted to be eye-level with the goose family.
Inspiration
I have been observing the cemetery wildlife for some time and the domestic geese and Canada geese found there have always been great subjects for interesting and cute photos. I love to observe the goslings and was hoping that the goose family would provide a great photo opportunity that morning.
Editing
I edited my image in Photoshop CS6 making adjustments with PictoColor iCorrect Edit Lab Pro6 and Nik Color Efex Pro4. I also used just a touch of the Oil Paint Filter in PS CS6.
In my camera bag
I currently use the Canon EOS 5D MarkIII camera. I carry several lenses in my bag. My main all around lens is my Canon EF24-105mmL but I also use a Canon EF17-40mmL for landscapes. I use the Sigma150-500mm lens for wildlife and for interesting photos, a 15mm Fisheye lens. Just recently I purchased a Tamron 28-300mm lens for times when I don't want to lug a lot of heavy equipment. I have only used it a few times so far and I'm still learning its capabilities. I carry a lightweight Manfrotto tripod with a Manfrotto grip action ball head as I enjoy doing HDR photography and a tripod is a must for that.
Feedback
To capture fun and interesting shots of wildlife, I would say that patience is your friend. You have to remain in one place quietly and just be observant and ready to shoot at a moment's notice. Things can happen quickly and if you're not prepared you'll miss the shot. Don't get too close to the subject so as not to frighten them or scare them away. That's where a long lens comes in handy. My Sigma 150-500 is ideal for this type of photography.
