Behind The Lens

Location
This albino snake was captured at San Diego Zoo, CA, USA.
Time
It was mid day ~2PM, however subject was kept in a closed chamber with artificial light.
Lighting
Source of light for this shot was flouroscent bulb right above the subject. Given that, light colored subject and high intensity light, I underexposed the shot 1/2 stop under fluorescent white balance.
Equipment
Canon T5i coupled with Canon 18-135 mm lens.
Inspiration
The color of the subject and my interest in animals and wildlife inspired me to capture this shot.
Editing
Post processing is important to make our photo look good and to get rid of distractions. I believe in simplicity, so basic color correction with cropping was done for this shot.
In my camera bag
I have canon 7dm2 camera with various lenses. 1. Sigma 18-35, f1.8 2. Canon 100L, f2.8 3. Canon 55-250mm, f3.5-5.6 4. Lensbaby 35 and 80mm manual 5. Samyang 8mm, f 3.5 6. Canon 400mm, f5.6
Feedback
3 simple tips 1. Pay attention to light, its angle, and white balance. 2. Be patient, wait for good moment. 3. Be curious, and take lots of pictures.
