Behind The Lens

Location
I literally took this photo in my backyard while kneeling near the back deck. I live in the country so the deer come and eat the grass in my yard. Since I'm always taking pictures of them, they've become comfortable with me being there and don't usually run off. This has allowed me to capture some precious moments.
Time
The deer usually visit in the early mornings and later afternoons. This particular photo was taken in the afternoon so I had to crank up the ISO to compensate for the disappearing light.
Lighting
The lighting is all natural for this photo and the sun was fading to the left. I had to raise the ISO quite a bit to brighten the image since I like a fast shutter speed for wildlife.
Equipment
I took this picture with a Canon 5D Mark III and a Tamron 150-600mm lens that I had gotten this past year. I had the lens at 400mm instead of all the way at 600mm for this photo so I could include more than just their faces.
Inspiration
The whitetail deer inspired me to take this photo. I've always loved touching photos of animals that give you a warm feeling and show you another side to them. When I saw the deer coming into the yard, I wanted to snap a few pictures and hoped for them to give me something that portrayed love on camera. They didn't disappoint. The bond between a mother and her baby is unlike any other.
Editing
I always do some kind of post-processing in Lightroom CC since I shoot in RAW. It just boosts what's already there. I then usually do a few finishing touches in Photoshop CC. I like to add an all over action filter that brightens and slightly saturates the colors, which I did for this photo.
In my camera bag
I always carry my Canon 5D Mark III with me. Depending if I think I'll need a lot of zoom or a wide angle helps me decide what to bring. Lately, the Tamron 150-600mm has been glued to my Mark III. It helps me get a lot of wildlife shots since animals aren't usually too close. I also love my Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 II prime lens. It's extremely sharp and the color it captures is beautiful. I also like to take my cheap Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens for portraits and wider angle shots. During the summer I bring my Canon 100mm f/2.8 prime macro lens with me a lot.
Feedback
I'm sure you've heard it before, but you need a lot of patience when capturing photos of wildlife. You also need a lot of space on your SD cards. I find that I snap photo after photo and if something interesting starts happening, such as a fight or a touching moment like the one captured here, I snap multiple fast shots continuously because when you do that, you can capture something beautiful that you would have otherwise missed. I'll use my photo as an example here. I snapped a bunch of photos and caught this one with both of their eyes closed showing each other love. The photo wouldn't have the same feeling if one of them had their eyes opened in any way. I hope this motivates you and helps give you a creative boost to get out there and start clicking! :)
