Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at a client's front yard just outside of Seattle, Wa. Their two bengal cats were climbing on apple trees.
Time
This photo was taken at the beginning of golden hour as the sun was starting to set.
Lighting
I played around with the sun quite a bit while I was photographing these cats. Facing the other way, the sun lit the cats up beautifully and created bright and colorful images. However, putting the sun behind the cat created a beautiful shading effect that I loved.
Equipment
This was shot with a Canon 5Diii and EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM lens.
Inspiration
Bengal cats are known for climbing trees, so I wanted to show them in their element.
Editing
I use did basic light touch-ups with Lightroom.
In my camera bag
I typically carry a Canon 5Diii and several lenses including (to name a few of the most common I use) the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM, EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM, EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM.
Feedback
Patience is key! The cats were very nervous at first since they are typically kept indoor, but with some time they were having so much fun and I was able to get some beautiful shots.
