Great Capture

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo is from the Ol Pejeta conservancy in Kenya.
Time
This was early evening while the sun was setting.
Lighting
The sun had just set here, giving the scene this cool blue tint.
Equipment
Nikon D850 with Nikon 400mm 2.8 lens.
Inspiration
All the elephants here where eating grass, but with the grass being very short they had to kick at tufts of grass, basically digging up the grass in order to get to it. This is what we see here in this photo, how this elephant is using her foot to kick up grass.
Editing
I process all my photos in Lightroom, usually pretty basic with contract, sharpness and clarity.
In my camera bag
When out on safari I have two Nikon D850, a longer and short telephoto lens, a Fujifilm X100F and an iPhone.
Feedback
Get out there, look for things that you like and take photos of it.
