Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on a local nature trail in Ottawa. This tree was located in a very mature forest that.
Time
This was taken on an early autumn morning.
Lighting
There was a great big thick layer of fog that absolutely coated this sleepy forest. It acted as a giant filter for the light which was perfect for a gloomier looking photo!
Equipment
This photo was taken with a Canon 7D Mark ii paired with a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens.
Inspiration
I was actually trying to photograph a very unique looking Woodpecker. I ended up at the base of the tree and looked upwards in search of it but I couldnt find it anywhere. I absolutely loved the way this thick curly bark was peeling and thought it would make an interesting foreground with a nice blurred out punch of colour.
Editing
I processed this photo through Adobe Photoshop and muted some of the shadows to give it a "flatter" look. I then added a warming filter and added a medium vignette to add darken the mood.
In my camera bag
Is food and water considered equipment? :) I only ever bring my Canon 7D mark ii camera, Canon 100-440mm ii lens and a spare battery of course! It's the only gear I currently have as I'm quite new to photography, but my next stop is a tripod!
Feedback
If you're intersted in editing, there are some great filters that you can use. I love editing in layers so you can always start with a layer that mutes the darker tones. Then, add on another layer with either a warmer or cooler tone to give it a bit more dimension. For an even bigger pop, add a little bit of a vignette!
