Love your photos! Black & white are my fav. You have done an awesome job!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia,SC. This is a male and he was quite worried about the female that was sick that day. He only left the room near her and I quickly got the shot. He went right back near her after this photo.
Time
It was late morning.
Lighting
It was bright and sunny this late morning.
Equipment
I used my canon and 16-35mm lens.
Inspiration
I have always wanted a great picture of a massive gorilla, unfortunately he was too worried about his friend to come and pose for me.
Editing
I took as color, but preferred it black and white better. I bumped up the clarity and contrast a bit.
In my camera bag
Always my Canon camera....16-35 mm lens.....18-55 mm lens...100 mm macro lens always a tripod, extra batteries,extra cards,remote switch.
Feedback
I have a yearly pass to this zoo, so I'll have as many opportunities as I allow myself to get the shot I want. Keep shooting!
