Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Yudanaka Japan
Time
It was around 11am and the snow had just started falling
Lighting
Because of the clouds the light was so nice and soft, perfect conditions
Equipment
Nikon d7000 with an 18-135mm 3.5-5.6 ED lens from Nikon, no tripod or flash
Inspiration
I had seen many documentaries about the Snow Monkeys of Japan and i just had to see them with my own eyes
Editing
Just a little sharpening and the odd lightroom adjustment, nothing special
In my camera bag
Now i carry the Nikon D750 with the 18-35mm and a Sigma 35mm 1.4
Feedback
Just be patient, take a few shots and wait for the right moment.
