Behind The Lens

Location
This is at the famous waterhole at the Okaukuejo rest camp in the Etosha National Park in Namibia.
Time
Enjoying our breakfast next to the Okaukuejo waterhole, this large herd of Zebra strolled towards the water having a refreshing drink. This shot was taken on the 30 March 2016 at 9:15.
Lighting
Typically for a national park, I could only make use of natural light. It was still early enough to get good contrasts.
Equipment
This was shot with Canon 650D, EF-S55-250mm f/4-5.6 ISII lens. No other equipment was used.
Inspiration
It is a great privilege, being able to visit the Etosha National Park. I love taking pictures of animals, particular wild life. I have no preference towards any animal, but Zebra always present interesting photographic opportunities.
Editing
The picture was taken in RAW and I used Photoshop Elements to process the image, including converting it to black and white. Otherwise nothing more than the basics and a bit of cropping.
In my camera bag
Normally I pack my camera (Canon 650D) and the EF-S55-250mm f/4-5.6 ISII lens as well a EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 ISII lens. Also in the bag I keep a spare battery, memory card and cleaning gear.
Feedback
As with all wild life photos, being present is the main ingredient. Always expect something awesome to happen, wild animals are per definition unpredictable. With herds or bigger groupings, look out for the unique individual behavior, either by a single animal or a small group with in the larger group. Take lots and lots of shots, moments are fleeting and animals do not pose for your perfect shot. Lastly, enjoy the experience and take time to see beyond your view finder ;-)
