Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken at mudhumalai tiger preserve India.

Time

The photo was taken on an early morning safari around 7am. The peafowl stood majestically for few minutes where I was able to capture this shot handled.

Lighting

It was a monsoon season in India and dark clouds everywhere, but that early morning light was a definitive plus for the shot.

Equipment

This photo was shot using a Nikon D7000 and a Nikon 200-500mm @ 500mm and f/5.6

Inspiration

I have seen a lot of peafowl during my trip to India, usually I see them walking or standing on the ground . This was a perfect pose on a dead tree just high enough above the ground to present the complete beauty of the peafowl.

Editing

I like to use Lightroom for post processing. I remember this picture required very little post processing since it came out really nice as shot.

In my camera bag

Usually I carry a DX body and 200-500mm for wildlife. 24-120mm with a FX body for closer subjects and landscape.

Feedback

Wildlife photography requires a lot of patience, sometimes you have to make multiple trip to get a perfect shot that you have imagined. One has to wait for that perfect moment to capture a beautiful picture.
