Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Dierenpark Amersfoort. A zoo in Amersfoort, the Netherlands.
Time
Date taken 2015-02-27 13:40
Lighting
No flash. Natural light.
Equipment
CAMERA: Canon EOS 650D LENS: Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro Thats all :-)
Inspiration
What inspired me? The bird. It is so amazing and huge. I made many more photos. He was standing in front of me with his wings spread. Wingspan: about 2.5 m. So impressive!
Editing
Yes, I used Lightroom and Photoshop to make the background black. There were some disturbing elements in the back.
In my camera bag
Anno 2015: Camera: Canon EOS 650D/Rebel T4i Lens: TAMRON 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD B016 Close-Up filters Multi Coated Glass 4 Piece Filter Kit Spare memory card Spare batteries Often a Tripod
Feedback
Take your time. These kind of animals/birds never do what you would want them to do. You can only wait. Relax, enjoy what you see, don't think "I have to make an amazing photo". Give the animal a chance to get used to you. Wait for the right moment and click!
