Sambhar Deer Male.

A portrait which I took almost hanging myself from the safari jeep to get the right composition.

Shooting animals in their natural habitat is a great feeling and it will teach us the sense of responsibility we should posses to conserve wildlife. Wildlife photography is not about taking good images of animals rather it is documenting these animals behavior. Our aim is, through photography as an art reaching maximum number of people to conserve nature.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this image from Tadoba Tiger Reserve, Maharashtra in India
Time
This was one image where i had to literally bend down from the safari Jeep (Almost hanging) to get into the eye level of my subject. The result was worth for my effort. Image was made around 4:15 Pm.
Lighting
It was a bright day and the forest was dry. Because of this dry trees and Bamboos the light which was falling my subject was giving me Warm effect to my image. I had kept the White Balance at around 5250K.
Equipment
I made this image using Canon 7D with 100-400mm Canon IS II (Hand Held) with no other equipment. Exif - Canon 7D, 100-400mm Canon shot at Focal Length 400mm, F-8, Shutter - 1/400, ISO - 640, Expo Comp - -0.7, Aperture Priority
Inspiration
As we were looking for different Mammals in the forest we came across another team which had sighted a Leopard couple of minutes back near the river. Our Naturalist told us that we might have a chance to sight the Leopard if we go near the river. While on our way, this Sambhar Deer came right in front of us and was bold enough to pose us for couple of minutes. The way the light was falling through the dry Trees and Bamboos on my subject inspired me to capture this picture.
Editing
The image has been post-processed to correct White Balance, Highlights, Contrast, Saturation, Sharpness etc However the image has not been edited.
In my camera bag
I use Canon 7D with 18-135, 100-400mm and Nikon 300S with 105mm Macro lens.
Feedback
My advice is always to get into the eye level of the subject, always follow Rule of Thumb to get sharp image, Understand White Balance to add temperature to the image and keep EV betwwen -1 to 0 to get best contrast.
