Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in the Corbett Tiger Reserve, India, while on an assignment for the Forest Department.
Time
The photo was made midway onto the safari/trip and the light was lovely.
Lighting
The tiger was resting in the shade of a tree and there was some nice light falling on the background, this made for a perfect setting.
Equipment
This was shot on a Nikon D4s along with a Nikkor 600mm F4 lens, my most used gear combo for wildlife photography. Since I was in a vehicle, the photo was shot handheld.
Inspiration
I loved the calm pose of the tiger and yet at the same time a certain alertness with which it kept an eye on me.
Editing
I usually stick to basics of adjusting the exposure and colours to match the scene I saw with my eyes and then a basic round of sharpness.
In my camera bag
I usually travel with my trustee low light workhorses the Nikon D4s and the NikonZ7. As for lenses I keep the AF-S Nikkor 600mm F4/G VR, this has been my most used wildlife lens, along with this is a zoom Nikkor 200-500mm and a Nikkor 24-70mm for landscape and wide shots. I also rent the Nikkor 105mm VR Macro lens along with a Nikon Speedlight for macro photography and a Tokina 16-28mm F2.8 for landscape photography if required.
Feedback
Wildlife photography is all about patience and being ready when action happens, but what is also very important is giving your subject space and not disturbing or provoking it.
