Behind The Lens

Location
It was taken at RSPB Bempton Cliffs
Time
Taken mid morning.
Lighting
The lighting was a bit harsh with the sun shining so I tried to bring the contrast down a little.
Equipment
Nikon D7100 - Nikon 500mm lens on tripod.
Inspiration
I love the clean lines of the Gannets and, of course, the closeness the paired birds display.
Editing
Very little. Mainly bringing the contrast down a bit.
In my camera bag
Two Nikon bodies. One crop and one full frame camera. Nikon 300 VR II lens and Nikon 70-200mm VR II. Sometimes carry the 500mm lens if needed.
Feedback
Learn the behaviour of your subject to anticipate what it might do next and then lots of patience.
