Behind The Lens

Location
This image of the bald eagle was taken on during a photo workshop week in Homer, Alaska. We faced all sorts of weather during the week and this one afternoon the sun came out illuminating the surrounding mountains. After that it was a waiting game snapping images until the right sequence set up a beautiful image of a mature eagle flying high.
Time
Image was captured mid to late afternoon as the sun was shining against the Alaska mountain range.
Lighting
Taken in the out of doors, lighting is in nature's control. Fortunately, I had enough time to capture images that the afternoon's sunlight was used to full advantage.
Equipment
Equipment and settings: Canon 5D Mark IV, Tamron 150-600mm lens set at 150mm, ISO 640, F/7.1, shutter 1/3200.
Inspiration
Participating in a photography workshop was an amazing experience. We focused on photographing bald eagles for the week, trying different backdrops and locations each day and ultimately many different weather conditions too.
Editing
Shooting RAW images always involves some post-processing for me. Depending on the resulting image out of the camera, I'll enhance brightness, colors and image sharpness.
In my camera bag
I usually carry a couple of camera bodies along with a 16-35mm wide angle, 24-105mm zoom, and 150-600mm zoom lens. Other basic stuff like spare batteries, remote shutter releases and sturdy tripods are almost always with me. If I go out for a specific shoot, I'll carry other size lens.
Feedback
Anyone that photographs wildlife, knows that patience and timing are critical to capturing a moment that you're happy with. I've photographed eagles many times, and have had varying degrees of success. No matter what, any day being in the out of doors and having a camera in your hands is a GREAT day.
