Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Colchester Zoo, in Essex, UK
Time
It was taken in the early afternoon in early spring.
Lighting
It was a nice and bright day
Equipment
Fujifilm
Inspiration
There wasn't a cloud in the sky in the early spring, Taiga the tigress was relaxing at the very top of a platform in her enclosure so the background is completely natural.
Editing
Post processing was just minor brightness and contrast adjustments
In my camera bag
I usually just carry a bridge camera, and lenses cleaner!
Feedback
If you can choose a day and time when there won't be many people around so the animals will be relaxed and more likely to be out and about. Nice weather, not too hot or cold also helps. Be patient, go around the zoo a few times and look up, down, round corners
