Behind The Lens

Location
Katmai Alaska
Time
Around midday
Lighting
It was my goal to catch a grizzly with a salmon catch. I found the expression in the salmoneyes /face interesting: surprised That he got caught.
Equipment
Nikon D70 + 50-500mm sigma lens + rollei Light weight tripod
Inspiration
The grizzly himself and his lazy way of trying to catch any fish in this waterfall of salmons and his awareness of us watching and him showing his skills was fun.
Editing
Since it was little cloudy at that moment i filled it later with some Light correction. And the contrast between braun bear and white water needed a little adjustment.
In my camera bag
Nikon D70/D7200 several lenses wide angle - macro- regulator - tele 50-500mm. Samsung tablet and mobile. Extra batterij. Enough gig
Feedback
Be patient for the right moment. It will happen so be ready. Adjust and prepare your camera before. Eat a lot before going there because you might Be standing there without anything to eat only water to bring along. It is a long worthwhile wait.
