Behind The Lens

Location
This photograph of the bald eagle was taken at the Canadian Raptor Conservatory in Vittoria, Ontario. The facility cares for sick or injured birds of prey and when possible releases them back into the wild. They also have birds of prey which have been used in movies.
Time
This photograph was taken approximately 1:00 p.m.
Lighting
I prefer natural lighting as it can set the mood of your photograph and on this particular day it was a beautiful snowy day with a bit of overcast. No flash was required.
Equipment
I do not have expensive camera equipment. I used my Canon camera to capture this beautiful eagle. I also believe that cameras do not always take the photograph but photographers do.
Inspiration
I was inspired and intrigued by the beauty and gracefulness of these large birds of prey. For me they create a challenge as I never know what to expect from them. Capturing the personality through expression is something that can tell a story.
Editing
I sharpened the eagle just a bit to make it pop. I also textured the background of the eagle with a textured background from Jai Johnson of The Daily Texture.
In my camera bag
In my camera bag I carry my Canon camera, extra batteries, various filters, lens filter cleaner and extra memory cards.
Feedback
Every photograph tells a story, make your photograph tell a story. Photography changes the way you see things when you start to see the world through a lens. Have fun and enjoy doing what you love doing, which is taking photographs. Don’t follow your dreams … chase them!
