Now this is the cutiest EVER!!

Behind The Lens

Location
In elephants conservation centre "Adventures with elephants" in Bela-Bela, South Africa
Time
7:45 am as the elephants are left free to walk around and feed themselves
Lighting
Nothing particular, just an overcasted sky
Equipment
Sony Nex-6000 and lens Sony E PZ 18-105mm f/4 G OSS at 34mm, handheld.
Inspiration
Well protected by his mother and another female elephant, this 11 days old elephant (90cm high, slighly less than 100 kgs) was the star of the morning.
Editing
Usual stuff. Removing highlights, pushing up slightly the shadows to reveal details of the skin
In my camera bag
This would depends of the kind of travel, but these days I'm shooting with a Sony A7R MKII with Sony 70-400 G f/5.6 for wildlife + Sony A7 and Sony/Zeiss 16-35 f/4
Feedback
Be patient, move slowly, don't make any sudden movements. Low down to the eye level of your subject. Observe adult elephants reaction and retreat if they feel annoyed.
