Behind The Lens

Location
Masai Mara River, Kenya
Time
It about after noon and we parked in other end of the bank watching this herd of wildebeest congregate on other side nervously to cross the Mara river
Lighting
Light was hard but was saved by few over hanging clouds which helped diffuse the light
Equipment
Used Canon1DX and Canon 500m F4 on bean bag on top of safari vehicle
Inspiration
Well have seen many photos and video of these wildebeest crossing, wanted to capture photo which shows how organized great migration is even in time of absolute chaos
Editing
Yes, processed the photo in Photoshop/ Light room to correct white balance, reduced the noise and leveled the photo
In my camera bag
Mostly i have 5dmkIV, 7dmk II , 1DX, 100-400mm , 1.4x TC and mighty 500mm F4
Feedback
If you have long lens then don't try to fit everything what your eyes see normally, focus on main activity and target same and find out different compositions, play with aperture to darken image and capture the highlights or bring down the shutter speed to capture the motion. Here i brought the shutter speed up to freeze the frame along with dust of cloud which was getting kicked up by commotion
