Behind The Lens

Location
Mara conservancy in Kenya
Time
Late afternoon
Lighting
Natural lighting
Equipment
Canon 5d iv canon 100-400 lens. Handheld
Inspiration
The majestic lion. I also liked the context of the long grass going to seed.
Editing
Very little. A little white balance adjustment and a bit of sharpening
In my camera bag
Canon 5d iv canon 80d canon lenses 16-35 24-70 70-200 100-400 and 500. Rrs tripod and ball head. Wimberley gimbal if I am stationary.
Feedback
Wait for good light. Pay attention to exposure compensation or you will blow out highlights.
