Beautiful.

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta.
Time
Sometime in the afternoon but its all the same time when in there.
Lighting
I had found a spot where the light was shining right down from both angles and waited for one of those big guys to stroll right into my shot.
Equipment
Canon 5DMIII and 24-105 Lens
Inspiration
Just my fascination with sea life.
Editing
This was my first image I ever processed in Photoshop and all I knew how to do was dodge and burn. After countless hours of D+B I ended up with this result.
In my camera bag
Zeiss Distagon 15mm with Singh-Ray polarizer and firecrest 165 plates of 3,6 and 10 stop ND Filter and 3 stop Graduated. I also carry the Canon 70-200 2.8 II with 2x extender. A Canon 100mm macro and Canon 24-70 2.8 II.
Feedback
Try to visualize what you want the shot to look like and then have fun trying to create it =)
