Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken near my home, in a small private bird sanctuary.
Time
The time of day was late afternoon.
Lighting
The subject was illuminated with strong defused sunlight from the rear, and adequate reflected frontal lighting.
Equipment
I made this photo with a Canon Digital xt, with a 75-300 mm zoom lens, mounted on a tripod.
Inspiration
I am passionate about capturing God's Beautiful Handiwork!
Editing
The background was a bit washed out, and required some post-processing. I used Photo-studio a professional photo editing program to replace the background.
In my camera bag
I almost always carry a 75-300 mm zoom lens, a 28-80, and a macro. My bag also contains Cokin graduated neutral density filters, a polarizing filter, speedlite flash unit, and remote shutter release cables.
Feedback
To capture this type of photo I recommend creating a small private sanctuary in an area where your talent feels safe and secure, away from predators with a continuous supply of food and water. When your talent is happy, good photos can happen. I mounted my camera on a tripod about 8’ ft. from my subject with an aperture setting of 7.1 this provided the depth of field I needed. The focus was set to manual. The ISO was set to 800 and the shutter speed was about 1/2000. I employed a long shutter release cable to provide some distance between me, and my subject. The shutter release cable was 27’ ft. in length.
