Behind The Lens

I took this shot in Sainte Croix park wich is a wildlife reserve in north east France not far from my hometown.
I went to the park early morning.
At the morning the sun was still down and the clouds hidding it created a good soft light perfect for this kind of portraits.
I clicked this shot with my Sony alpha 7S II and the Sigma 150-600mm. Despite the lense being really heavy I didn't use tripod here because the wolves moved quite a lot.
I was looking for the eye contact of a wolf and the magic happened when these three goodfellas was looking my way. All of them looked at me but not at the same time. I loke how this guy in the middle seems to be aware of me since the two others are not.
There is not a lot of post processing here. I mostly added contrast and clarity in the fur and the eyes. Brought up the black and balanced the colors. I like the monochrome style of this shot and how the wolves are matching the background.
In my camera bag
I have a Sony a7S II camera with a CANON 24-70mm f4, a SAMYANG 14mm f2.8, a SIGMA 150-600mm f/5.6-6.3 and a CANON 50mm f1.8. I also have a M42 adapter and an Helios 44-2 58mm f2.8 lens made in USSR. A Pola filter and ND filter are completing my equipement.
Wildlife photography is to me the most difficult but the most rewarding type of photography. It is good to train yourself on wildlife photography in parks and reserve if you have the opportunity. I learn wich are the good angles to photograph an animal, wich kind of background and composition I can think of when a certain animal is in front of my lense. Animals are unpredictible and you can't direct them or tell them to hold a pose but in reserves you can train yourself to react quickly and master your camera so you can react in time to get the perfect shot.
