Behind The Lens

Location
The place is called Liburna, and is a Donkey Reservation and Agricultural Museum. It is near Rasa (Istra, Croatia). A friend of mine, a prcticing Ecologist, manages the place, and I have the privilege to go and freely photograph the animals and walk among them (since they've accepted me and show neither fear nor aggression. And donkey mums and pops can be pretty dangerous when the youngs are around.
Time
11:26:15
Lighting
Natural daylight, sunny. The flash was on, but did not fire.
Equipment
SONY F-828 from the hand. No added equipment.
Inspiration
The sheer beauty of the cute young animal in the bright meadow carpeted in million yellow flowers.
Editing
The usual: cropping, color balancing, resizing for upload, and a bit of subsequent re-sharpening.
In my camera bag
I usually have two cameras along, and one of those has to be waterproof.
Feedback
Taking pictures of animals requires patience, even in the Zoo! It helps when you don't show neither fright nor aggression. Simply place yourself in the vicinity, think peaceful thoughts, and let the animal get used to your presence before you start clicking. Your moves should not be too quick, there should be as little noise as possible. Love that animal, and it will love you back.
