Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photograph of the bald eagle at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy in Vittoria, Ontario.
Time
I captured this photograph at approximately 1:30 p.m. in July.
Lighting
Natural lighting was used.
Equipment
I used my Canon camera which was hand held. I did not use a tripod (although some may) for the mere fact that I never know if they are going to fly high, low, left, right or straight at you. I do not believe you have to have an expensive camera to capture a beautiful photograph. I feel strongly that cameras do not take the photograph but photographers do.
Inspiration
I am always inspired and intrigued by the fast paced actions of birds of prey. The word raptor is derived from "rapere", a Latin word which means to seize or capture and that is exactly what I attempt to do with my camera! They are such a beautiful, graceful yet powerful bird of prey and I find it mesmerizing to watch them.
Editing
The only minor post-processing I did on this photograph was to cropped it slightly and then used Photoshop to make it a bit more sharper. Otherwise what you see is what came straight out of my camera.
In my camera bag
In my camera bag I carry my Canon camera, extra batteries, various filters, lens filter cleaner and extra memory cards.
Feedback
I strongly believe that every photograph tells a story, so make your photograph tell a story. Photography changes the way you see things. You notice colours, textures, people, nature … everything around you looks different when you start to see the world through a lens. Have fun and enjoy doing what you love doing, which is taking photographs. Don’t follow your dreams … chase them!
