Thank you :)

Behind The Lens

Location
I'm a traveller from India and during travelling I never forget my Camera. I went on a trip to Vishakapatnam (located in India) which is pretty famous for beaches. One fine afternoon I went to the beach and happened to see this heron. Being a bird lover i carry my 70-300 mm lens along with me (though its pretty heavy :-D). After following the bird for around 30 mins finally got this low angle shot which is one my favourite photos.
Time
It was shot during the afternoon which was a sunny day and I happened to be near the beach.
Lighting
It was a sunny day and the light was perfectly good. So nothing much to share about it
Equipment
This was shot using Nikon D5100 with 70-300 mm Nikkor lens.
Inspiration
Being a bird watcher I always loved to click different birds and also study about the same. So I happened to be near the beach where I noticed few birds like Kingfishers,Sand plovers,Eagles,Herons etc. Once my eyes are set on a bird till I get a perfect shot I follow the bird.
Editing
In this particular picture not much of post-processing required just a little bit of sharpness was increased.
In my camera bag
I always carry Nikon D5100 along with 18-55 mm,35 mm,70-300 mm lens and my most favourite REVERSE RING ADAPTER for macro photography.
Feedback
For people who would love to click birds I would like to advice is always carry a zoom lens with good VR. Hold the lens firmly in a good position to avoid shakes which will result in a blurry picture. I'm not really a big fan of using tripod but depending on the lighting please carry one light-weighted tripod.
