Behind The Lens

Location
I used to live in the Florida Keys and green iguanas were abundant there. I was picking some banana tree in my yard when I spotted this baby iguana staring at me. He was not movimng at all, likely hoping that he would blend in enough that I would not see him. I ran in the house and grabed my DSLR and it took me a couple of minutes to find him again. Based on his size, he was likely less that 4 weeks old.
Time
I was early in the day, so the natural light was not too harsh and gave great ambiance.
Lighting
Mother nature at her finest!
Equipment
Cannon EOS XTI. Canon 50mm 1.4 lens.
Inspiration
I loved having all of the beautiful tropical plants and animals all around me in TheKeys. I took thousands of photos in my 8 years of living there.
Editing
I did some monor adjustments on Lightroom, but not much. I do not do much post work.
In my camera bag
These days it is my Canon 5D MkIII and my 17-40 1.5L lens. I keep it simple.
Feedback
Patience and persistence.
