Behind The Lens

Location
This photo is from the Maasai Mara national reserve in Kenya.
Time
Think this was close to noon, but the day was slightly cloudy so it wasn't too hot or sunny for the elephants to be out walking somewhere.
Lighting
This time a day the light is usually pretty harsh, but this day the cloud cover made for at least decent light.
Equipment
Handheld Nikon 200-400mm f4 on a Nikon D850 body, shooting out the side of a 4WD car.
Inspiration
These little guys where just walking along the rest of the herd, and when the aligned for a short while I took this particular photo.
Editing
Processing is pretty basic Lightroom processing with contrast and sharpness.
In my camera bag
On safari I usually have two camera bodies with different lenses on, for example a longer and a shorter telephoto lens. I also carry a compact camera for more wide angle and candid shots, and an iPhone.
Feedback
Get out there and keep your eyes open. Look the wrong way and you'll miss it.
