Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Tanzania, at the Serengeti National Park
Time
It was June, winter in Tanzania. The rainy weather was almost over but the sky was still full of clouds. The sunset and the sky was beautiful, with colors that emphasized the African warmth
Lighting
I used the real light without changing it because it makes true the sense of magnificence and majesty of this wonderful landscape and the colors of savannah, rock and lion. I wanted to convey the sense of peace that was there and the natural warm light helps my goal
Equipment
This was shot on a Nikon Coolpix B700, in Raw format, f/5.6, iso 360, 1/250 sec
Inspiration
I wanted to represent the perfection of the king, showing his extreme beauty and his wild nature. Her profile allowed me to capture all the details of her face and her flowing mane, which thanks to the colors of the sunset, results vivid and golden. This scene reminded me the Disney movie and that's why I called it "The Lion King"
Editing
I worked with Lightroom for post production, improving the colors of the rock and the lion, to which I increased the brightness. On the toner curve I lowered the dark colors and enhanced the lights, increasing the contrast of the landscape and the definition was improved by increasing the sharpness
In my camera bag
I always have my Canon 5d IV with me and I use a Tamron 28-300 lens when I can not change the lens, a CANON EF 17-35mm f2,8 series L for landscape photos and photos at night, a 100-400 zoom with 2x extension, when I need to photograph far away, a 12mm f/2.8 ED AS IF NCS UMC Fisheye Lens. I also uses UV filters or degrading filters when needed
Feedback
As a naturalist photographer, my advice is to keep the photo as faithful as possible to reality without exceeding in post production or using filters that can alter its value and natural beauty. A good shot is good the moment the photo is taken. I often see improper use of filters that modify beautiful landscapes, making them unreal
