Behind The Lens

Location
This photo is from the Maasai Mara national reserve in Kenya.
Time
This was still early morning, and sun was just breaking through the cloud cover.
Lighting
You can see the first rays of sunshine caught in the lion's mane, and the early morning sun in east Africa gave the scene a golden hue.
Equipment
Nikon D850 with Nikon 200-400mm f4.
Inspiration
When you're out on safari it's less about inspiration and more about being in the moment; I shoot to capture memories of what I see.
Editing
This photo is processed in Lightroom with pretty basic settings and some dodge and burn of shadows and highlights.
In my camera bag
My standard safari equipment is two camera bodies with different lenses, usually a longer telephoto lens and a shorter one; right now I use a 200-400mm and 70-200mm lens + a Fujifilm X100F.
Feedback
Think about composition, and try to re-compose while shooting to make sure you get the best possible shot before the moment is over.
