Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken from my back yard
Time
The sun was up and it was during the day before sunset
Lighting
This was a partly cloudy to mostly sunny day & the moon was out, I just worked with what was presented to me.
Equipment
Most of my shots are hand held and this one was no exception. I use a Canon 7d Mk II with a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens, no flash.
Inspiration
I like taking photo's of the moon and I happened to see some clouds passing by the moon during the day so I decided to take a few shots. I waited until the clouds were in the right spot shrouding the moon.
Editing
I auto corrected the lighting with Photoshop which made the shot more dramatic. I cropped it some as well so that the moon shrouded in clouds were the focus
In my camera bag
I carry my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens the most, usually with my Canon 1.4x III extender attached. I'm usually outside looking for various birds & wildlife so I need a long lens for that type of photography. . In my bag I have an Canon Speedlight 600EX-RT flash, I have a Canon 24-105mm 1:4 L IS which I use more for landscapes, portraits & macro. I have a macro lens EFS 35mm IS. I carry a 77mm B+W Circular Polorizer filter KSM MRC, I have a couple of clear MRC Nano filters that are B+W to protect the lens and keep it clean. I carry a couple of filter wrenches as well. I always carry and extra battery, lens cleaner & various accessories. I rarely carry my bag with me,
Feedback
I'm always looking for new ways to capture old things. If it's a pocket watch on a vase, a reflection of a flag in a marble or the moon in the clouds, be creative. When using a longer lens either learn to stay very still or use a tripod.
