Behind The Lens

Location
Moremi National Park in Botswana
Time
Mid afternoon which is surprising as it is the hottest part of the day
Lighting
Natural lighting was quite bright but the leopard was hiding in cover (can you blame him). This made it a little difficult to compensate for between the two
Equipment
Canon 70d with Sigma 150-600mm C lens and a steady hand!
Inspiration
First time seeing a leopard in the wild was all the inspiration I needed! Amazing creatures but was only a brief moment to capture anything on camera.
Editing
Only touching up of colouring on lightroom but nothing major
In my camera bag
I still only have the one camera body (canon 70d) so obviously always have that on me. Unless I know i will be photographing wildlife then the sigma 16-50mm is a great all round travel lens. Otherwise the sigma 150-600mm and the canon 100-400mm
Feedback
Patience and luck is always key in wildlife photography!
