Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo at Healesville sanctuary in Victoria, Australia. It was during the birds of prey show when this majestic bird came very close to where I was.
Time
It was around mid-day on a sunny day.
Lighting
It was a sunny day. I parked myself close to a place within the of the bird show area that had enough soft light but no direct sunlight.
Equipment
I took this image using Canon 7D and Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L IS USM lens. The camera was handheld.
Inspiration
I had recently gotten serious about photographing bird. I had a great desire to get close to this majestic Australian barking owl and photograph it to share its beauty with the world from up close.
Editing
I corrected the white balance, adjusted the exposure by half a stop and slightly adjusted the contrast.
In my camera bag
I mostly photograph birds which requires telephoto lenses. Here is what I always have with me on my expeditions: - Canon 7D Mark II + Sigma 150-600mm DG OS HSM Sports lens - Canon 7D + Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L IS USM - Canon 24-105mm f4 IS USM - 1.4x teleconverter - Tripod + Ball head + Gimbal head - Some ND and Polarising filters
Feedback
My advice is to be prepared and be ready. Prepare according to place, subject, location, best spot with the desired background. Be ready by setting your camera/equipment to correct setting for the desired result, etc. Patience and observation are important. Above all, please remember to enjoy the journey.
