Wow amazing 😍

Behind The Lens

Location
In my garden in the middle of Sweden where red squirrels come from the forest around my house
Time
2018-06-10 12:20:18.004
Lighting
Mostly it is ambient light. I use some flashes to fill some shadows, because I captured it against the sun
Equipment
Nikon D810 Nikon 80-400 mm
Inspiration
For some years I wanted to capture a shot like this, but never managed. I was lucky there was wind blowing which helped the seeds to loose
Editing
some vignetting and some hight light away
In my camera bag
remote, battery, card, tripod, cleaning gear, filter,
Feedback
Get wild animals close by giving them food and show your self often to them so they get used to humans and build up that relation by coming close and make them used to the camera. A process that takes time but a good investment in the long run
