Excellent image! Very beautiful

Behind The Lens

Location
The photograph is made in the nature park of Cabárceno, Cantabria, northern Spain. A very special place, where dozens of brown bears coexist together in an environment full of caves and rugged terrain.
Time
It was taken during the golden hour, while the sun colored the natural environment, and created a very special atmosphere. The sun outlined its beautiful silhouettes, creating textures in its fur.
Lighting
The light was completely natural, without external help. It was the golden moment of sunset.
Equipment
The photo is made with a Nikon D7100 and a sigma 150-600 telephoto. Right now I use the same lens, but with a Nikon D850.
Inspiration
I usually look for a message in my animal photographs that I transmit. I want to create a feeling, a reaction beyond a simple documentary photograph. A photograph has to have a hidden emotion so that it has a certain value. This is my subjective opinion of the animal photography.In this picture I wanted to show the human side of these bears. It seems that one of them tries to help with his hand the last of his group to climb a steep mountain top.
Editing
For this photograph I have used a basic development in ACR, with a simple adjustment of levels and colors.
In my camera bag
Currently, my two favorite disciplines in photography are Landscape and Animals. For this, I use a Nikon D850, a Sigma 150-600 and a Nikon 14-24. For landscape, I sometimes use the Lucroit filter system with neutral density filters.
Feedback
You have to be aware that photography is not a simple discipline. There are many days that you arrive home without any photographs that you like. You have to have a lot of patience and perseverance, especially in the case of animal photography. the one that everything goes well and the work and the time invested have their reward. The most important thing is that you like what you do, and the good photographs will arrive little by little.
