Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in an Island in South Georgia, Antarctica. In this place there is a big King penguin colony. It was an amazing day to make photos of them
Time
I love this photo, shows what an amazing animals they are, taking care of each other. I remember I took these photo in the morning, not sure at what time because we arrive very early and we stood there for a long time watching they behavior.
Lighting
I love the light in this photo because it´s very warm and helped me to show every amazing colors and details of this birds. I thing the light it´s the key that helped me to make this great composition.
Equipment
This photo was shot in a 5d mark II with a 70-200mm 2.8 lens. without tripod.
Inspiration
We took the passengers of a cruise ship to the island to watch one of the biggest colony of King Penguins. So I was there taking photos of the penguins and the amazing landscape. I was watching the King penguins and learning their behavior which I find fascinating and amazing. Then I saw this great couple of penguin hugging, kissing and acting so cute, warm and loving with each other. That I had to have this photo to remember and share.
Editing
I just had to process the raw file to jpg, but that was it.
In my camera bag
Well it depends on what king of photos I´m taking, but usually and specially in wild life and landscape I put in my big lowepro bag my to canon cameras one is a canon 5d mark II and the other one is a canon 5d mark III with a 16-35mm, 70-200mm, 24-70mm all of them canon lens, my tripod, a flash just in case a lens cleaner.
Feedback
Well when you are shooting wild life and landscape to always have to be very pacient and attention all the time, you don´t want to miss something spectacular. Also be carefull on the set up of your camera, because the lighting is always changing. And also be careful on your speed set up because animals are moving a lot most of the time and so fast.
