Beautiful

Behind The Lens

Location
Taken on the out skirts of Tulsa in Oklahoma.
Time
Mid morning.
Lighting
Very cloudy day and a break in the clouds every once in awhile.
Equipment
Nikon D850, 150-600 mm Tamron lens, no tripod hand held.
Inspiration
The title of this photo is " Looking back home" one of several wild horses that were relocated from Wyoming to Oklahoma do to the over population. Like any wild animal do not push their limits work on their ground, I was over 75 yards away. I stood for over 45 minutes before they started to get comfortable. After a short time they would get curious and start moving more natural and getting just a bit closer within 30 yards.
Editing
Bumped up the contrast and darkened the whole photo, also brought the shadow as far as I could. Then bumped the color up.
In my camera bag
Nikon D850, Nikon D750, 150-600 mm Tamron lens, 14-35mm Tamron, Nikon 35-120mm, Tri pod, several lens cloths, Lens wipes, 4 extra batteries, 4 different neutral density filters.
Feedback
Don't get in a hurry when photographing animals, respect their space. Turn phones off if you must carry one. I will carry one if I think I will walk over a 1/4 of mile. Photograph as far as possible but if you have to get closer, don't walk straight to them zig zag slowly working closer and taking breaks when stopping to turn but always respect their space.
