Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on a trip down to the Cape Town Two Oceans Aquarium. We were pretty much the only people there and the turtle was putting on a show.
Time
I remember we woke up super early to beat the queues. We got there an hour before the gates opened, waited patiently and then we were allowed to explore the wonders of this amazing place. This photo was captured in our first round through the aquarium and after that we walked it another 5 times.
Lighting
The lightning was very nicely setup in the tank which gave a great visual effect to the image. We also couldn't use any flash and to be honest it will look terrible on the tank's glass.
Equipment
I used my good old Nikon D90 with a plain and simple cheap Sigma 70-300 lens.
Inspiration
Well the turtle was dancing, we were amazed and I think he loved the photoshoot. True model.
Editing
I did some Photoshop retouching to get rid of the glass and scratches on it.
In my camera bag
I normally only have my D90 and a few lenses. Nothing fancy...ever.
Feedback
Keep on exploring the world and culture around you. Be amazed by finding spectacular moments and let it influence your photographic passion.
