Same photographer See all

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Lake Cerrillos, Ponce Puerto Rico.
Time
It was about 9:00a.m. when the picture was taken.
Lighting
Since it was a cloudy day a flash was used(I try not to use it as much as possible).
Equipment
I used a Canon 5d mark iii and a Canon 500mm f4 ii L series lens. I also used a Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT.
Inspiration
Nature inspires me to photograph birds.
Editing
I worked the highlights and shadows in the photo. I also added sharpening and a little bit of vignetting to the photo.
In my camera bag
When the day is cloudy I carry a flash, cleaning tissues and a polarizer filter for this lens.
Feedback
Respect the animal's habitat, do not harass them and wear camouflage clothes. Be very patience.
