Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on a safari in the Serengeti. I went on a two week trip, touring the national parks, just to photograph the wildlife.
Time
This was taken mid morning. We had gotten up very early that day for the safari, but our best finds actually came a few hours later. We found this large family group of lions just hanging out together and we could get pretty close allowing some wonderful shots.
Lighting
The sun was already high enough to potentially be harsh, but this cub was enjoying the shade and allowed a lovely filtered light shot through the shade of the tree.
Equipment
I was using my Canon 80D with a canon 100-400L lens. It is handheld as I was standing up through the open roof of the safari truck.
Inspiration
I love wildlife photography. It is my passion and African wildlife even more so. This cub was alert and watching me and giving great eye contact. He was a great subject.
Editing
Only simply touch ups in Lightroom.
In my camera bag
My Canon 80D, various Canon lenses such as the 100-400L, the 70-200L, my macro lens, mid range lens, filters batteries and various accessories.
Feedback
African wildlife is wonderful to photograph in the wild. Every day is an adventure and you never know what shots that day may bring. Having long range lenses is a must and it's also very useful to use a safari company whose drivers understand that you are here for photographs and have beanbags etc. Patience will get you great shots in the end.
