This photograph was taken from a hiding place, using two camouflaged flame units. It is always a magical moment when you see how a wild animal approaches and for a few minutes you can observe it in a few steps.
It is curious to observe how, at the minimum noise, they get scared and leave, but instead they are not afraid of any of the flash lights. I think this happens because they identify the flash as if it were lightning.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photograph was taken from a hide in Sant Esteve de Guialves, near to Girona. It is always a magical moment when you see how a wild animal approaches and for a few minutes you can observe it in a few steps.
Time
At night, and to be honest I was very worried because there was rain forecast and that could spoil the journey.
Lighting
I was use two camouflaged flash units. Is so curious to observe how, at the minimum noise, they get scared and leave, but instead they are not afraid of any of the flash lights. I think this happens because they identify the flash as if it were lightning.
Equipment
Nikon D610 with a 70-200mm and two flashes. Using a tripod and a remote control to prevent camera movements. Aperture f2.8 ISO 2500 Shutter 1/30.
Inspiration
I have to admit that I saw David Yarrow's "Wild Encounters" exhibition a little over a year ago and I was fascinated by his wildlife photography at B&W. Since then I am working on this type of development and it is a fascinating job. It really was an inspiration to me.
Editing
I usually use Lightroom for post-processing. I usually work with the concepts of clarity, contrast and luminosity, but in the case of B&W also the color curves to intensify the effects on the final result.
In my camera bag
Always my D610 with a 24-70mm and a 70-200mm, as well as a flash unit. Depending on the type of photographic output, I also usually include the 500mm, the tripod and accessories such as filters, mini-light box.
Feedback
For wildlife photography, a good mastery of the technique and your equipment is as important as the behavior of the animals you are going to photograph. The better this knowledge, the easier it will be to get that unique moment that will give you a great picture.
