Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Brugheas (France - Auvergne - Allier)
Time
It was during my lunchbreak of my work. I love to ride around and to take photos whenever I see a subject I like
Lighting
It was a cloudy day, the fields were muddy. I like to take photos when the weather is cloudy, the light gets something mysterious.
Equipment
Camera: PENTAX – PENTAX K-5 Lens : SMC Pentax-DA 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 Exposition : 1/25 Ouverture : f/8 Iso : 200
Inspiration
The curiosity of this huge animal. It's a bull from the Aubrac, a very old French breed of cattle used for beef. I love the imposture of this animal while his eyes are so gentle.
Editing
I used the software Dramatic Black and White from JixiPix to get to this result.
In my camera bag
PENTAX K-5 with a lens SMC Pentax-DA 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 and a lens Sigma DG 70-300mm 1:4-5:6
Feedback
Make many, many photos and only keep one. Be patient, try to get in a position in which you can stay for a while. Be creative, spontaneous and try to see the photo in your imagination to know what you're looking for.
