Behind The Lens

Location
I made this photo in a small petting zoo where I've never been before. It was a surprise to me that there was one on that spot. I came there by 'accident'.
Time
It was around noon in the summer of 2014.
Lighting
It was a bit cloudy that day and it diffused the natural light perfectly. So I didn't have a hard time to find the right camerasettings.
Equipment
I used my Nikon D90 and my wonderful Nikon 80-400 telelens. That's all.
Inspiration
In the morning I had a photoshoot with a family whose mother was terminally ill. They wanted a last picture of the family together. So you can imagine it was an emotional morning and I had to calm down a bit after the shoot. On my way home I accidentally came by a small petting zoo. It was a gift to find it, because it was the perfect way for me to calm down. To see these youngsters playing in the field made me cry at first, but after a while it brought some peace to me. Well, I realized it's the circle of life in a way. So for me this picture is so much more than a picture of two sweet fawns. For me it's about love, family, death and new life.
Editing
In Photoshop I made the picture lighter, a bit sunnier. Thats all.
In my camera bag
My relatively new Nikon D750, my Nikon 50 mm, my Nikon 80-400 mm tele and 24-200 mm. A small gold and silver reflector and sometimes my tripod. Good quality basics do the trick for me.
Feedback
Sometimes patience brings you what you wish for. With this picture it took a while for the setting was right. No disturbing background, good light and finally the fawns stood there as I hoped for. So don't always walk by and think: "Oh well, it's nice enough like it is". Just wait and wait and hopefully you can take the perfect picture.
