Fantastic foto

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Zimbabwe, at the Hwange National Park
Time
It was October, summer in Zimbabwe. The dry season brings the lions of this park to a behavior that characterizes them ... they kill the baby elephants to feed their families
Lighting
I used the real light of the sunset without changing it because it makes true the sense of the heat of the landscape and the colors of the savannah, the rock and the lions. I wanted to convey the sense of peace that was there and the warm natural light helps my lens
Equipment
This was shot on a Canon 5d mark IV, with an EF100-400mm f/5,6, iso 640, 1/1000 sec, 340mm
Inspiration
I wanted to represent the perfection of the lion family, showing their extreme beauty and their wild nature. Gratitude and balance are integral to the behavior of this species in nature and any kill means survival.
Editing
I worked with Lightroom for post production, improving the colors of the rock and the lion, to which I increased the brightness. On the toner curve I lowered the dark colors and enhanced the lights, increasing the contrast of the landscape and the definition was improved by increasing the sharpness
In my camera bag
I always have my Canon 5d IV with me and I use a Tamron 28-300 lens when I can't change lenses, a CANON EF 17-35mm f2.8 L series for landscape and night photos, a 100-400 zoom with 2x extension , when I have to photograph far away, a fisheye lens 14mm f / 2.8 ED AS IF NCS UMC and for the more extreme safaris a canon fixed lens 500mm. I also use UV filters or degrading filters when needed
Feedback
As a naturalist photographer, my advice is to keep the photo as faithful as possible to reality without exceeding in post production or using filters that can alter its value and natural beauty. A good shot is good the moment the photo is taken. I often see improper use of filters that modify beautiful landscapes, making them unreal
