Behind The Lens

Location
In my driveway. I looked out my front door one day and saw something in my driveway. I wasn’t sure what it was, so I crept closer and closer. When I realized what it was, I scrambled to go back and get my camera, thinking he would be gone when I got back. He wasn’t! I don’t have any big zoom lenses, so I had to get on the ground, a foot away from him and started doing a mini photo shoot with him.
Time
It was an overcast afternoon.
Lighting
I was lucky that it was a cloudy day. Being that it was mid afternoon, I didn’t really worry too much about the lighting that day because it was nice, diffused lighting because of the clouds.
Equipment
I used my Canon 7D with 100mm 2.8 Lens.
Inspiration
This was completely an unplanned shot! When I saw this little guy, I’m thinking straight out of the nest just sitting there chirping away, I knew this was a once in a lifetime shot. The odds of this happening again without a major zoom was slim to none. I had to go for it! I did not touch him, and took my shots and went back in the house. I felt he would not move on and hop away until I left, and didn’t want to scare him.
Editing
The did the normal post processing adjustments for exposure, contrast etc. I loved this shot how it was, but decided to add a rain overlay to give it that extra “something. “
In my camera bag
My camera, 100mm 2.8 and Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM. I always have my remote trigger, extra batteries and a flashlight.
Feedback
Sometimes You may think you can’t possibly have a winning shot because you don’t live in an area that has anything Spectacular in terms of scenery. (Like I did). My advice is to always keep your eyes open to things that are around you. Always be ready to go grab you’re camera, because life has a way of throwing unexpected opportunities and joys right in front of you... when you least expect it!! :)
