That's amazing

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this shot at a big cat sanctuary in South Africa. Being very close and at eye level was what i wanted.
Time
This was taken closer to sunset but the golden hour hasn't settled yet
Lighting
To be honest, the original shot was taken through a fence. At first i looked at the photo in lightroom and didn't like it... Till i started playing with the contrast and exposure. The end result is what you see here
Equipment
Canon 5d mark iii 70-200mm no flash or tripod used
Inspiration
I love big cats and being at a big cat sanctuary was an amazing experience to get close
Editing
I ended up with using lightroom to change contrast and exposure and obviously taken out the saturation. I shoot in black and white but raw format, so in lightroom they go back to colour
In my camera bag
Canon 5d mark iii and mark ii 24-70mm and 70-200mm and on wildlife trips as well 400mm
Feedback
Play around with the settings, get close and try eye level
