I have a very similar shot in my African collection.

Behind The Lens

Location
Tanzania
Time
Late evening
Lighting
The sun was low, coming in from the back. I chose a high shutter speed to avoid burn outs on the skin.
Equipment
Sony A7RII , Sony 70-200mm f/2.8
Inspiration
The impala just appeared in front of my tent so I had to take this opportunity before it ran away.
Editing
yes, I did some color correction and used a vignette to set focus on the head of the animal
In my camera bag
Sony A7RII, Sony 70-200mm f/2.8, Sony 16-35 gm, Sony 55mm f/1.8
Feedback
Always be ready to shoot ;)
