Behind The Lens

Location

I took this photo in the house, near a window from which the cat watched the birds fly in the sky.

Time

I remember well, it was morning, just after dawn and the warm rays of the sun illuminated the cat creating this almost "mystical" atmosphere.

Lighting

The warm, natural light of the first sun was perfect, nothing else was needed.

Equipment

I used my Nikon D800 with sigma 70/300 lens, free hand

Inspiration

The tenderness and the elegance of the Pavy kitten inspired me. She and her four little brothers and mother were abandoned near my house and joined the family immediately. I can say that it is the love for animals that inspired me this photo.

Editing

As I always do, shooting in raw and I do a basic editing in the camera raw, after PS through chromatic corrections and with the use of plug-ins Nik Collection reach the final result trying to enhance the shot.

In my camera bag

My Nikon D800, Sigma 70/300 and Nikkor 24/70, Manfrotto Tripod, and macro rings.

Feedback

Council to realize the shot in naturalness, natural lights, no forced pose, no constraints for animals, no forcing with food. Having a lot of patience and if the shot fails today, will succeed tomorrow, but above all a lot of love for any living being.
