This is amazing

Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken in a friends photo studio
Time
This particular image was taken in the morning of an all day macro photographic session
Lighting
A professional strobe lighting kit was used throughout the day with triggers attached to the camera
Equipment
This particular image was taken with a Canon 7D and a sigma 105mm macro lens
Inspiration
Chameleons are notorious for moving their eyes independently of each other. I specifically wanted to try and get an image with the eyes facing in the same direction at the same time, preferably looking directly at me. After several images, I was finally able to capture this image which was the only time in the whole session that Rusty looked directly at the lens with both eyes facing the same way at the same time :-)
Editing
The only post processing used was Lightroom purely to sharpen the image a little
In my camera bag
I have two Canon 7d bodies. When outdoors I normally have a 70-200mm 2.8 lens attached to one body and a 150-600mm attached to the other. For wider angle shots I also carry an 18mm-250mm lens. Indoors I predominantly use my sigma 1o5mm macro lens
Feedback
Patience, patience and more patience. Animals never do anything to order (unless specifically trained to do so). Always be on alert looking for an ideal opportunity. This image was taken just at the right time, a split second later and the opportunity was gone. As mentioned earlier, I wouldn't have had the opportunity again on that day.
