Behind The Lens

Location
I took this near McMurdo station, Antarctica.
Time
This shot is from a series taken around mid-day.
Lighting
There was thick cloud cover that day, so the light was evenly diffused and created excellent shooting conditions.
Equipment
I took this with a Nikon D7000 and nikkor 55-300.
Inspiration
I was looking down from a hill and loved how tightly the penguins were grouped. The cracking ice edge made for a nice leading line and the whole composition seemed uniquely Antarctican.
Editing
I lightened the shot up a bit, took out some noise and bumped up the clarity.
In my camera bag
Since we have a limited access to mail in the winter, whatever gear I bring down with me is all I have for the season. This year, I brought a Nikon d7000, Nikkor 18-105,Tokina 11-16 F2.8, Tamaron 70-200 F2.8, a Nikkor 50 F1.8, a tripod, cable release, and a few off camera flashes. Mid-way through the season I decided I wanted to try some new lighting techniques and diy-ed some light modifiers with cardboard and sheets since I couldn't get them any other way.
Feedback
When shooting wildlife, try to keep the environment in mind. I love to include interesting aspects of the surrounding area so that I can tell a more complete picture of the animal in it's natural habitat.
