Behind The Lens

Location
The picture was taken in my garden, West Midlands U.K.
Time
The picture was shot late morning.
Lighting
The day was overcast almost perfect conditions.
Equipment
I used a zoom lens to try to get a tight crop all shot with Canon equipment
Inspiration
This cat used to sit at the bottom of my garden looking up at the bird table wishing he had wings, he was a regular visitor and I just loved his eyes so I waited patiently and after a week or so I managed to shoot off 6 frames before he turned and run.
Editing
All I needed to do in post Processing was make everything a bit punchier with emphasis on the eyes.
In my camera bag
It depends on what or where I'm shooting these days I carry DC-G9 and a DC-9 camera 100_400 Panasonic Leica zoom lens a Fish eye and a 50mm fixed lens.
Feedback
Be Patient when trying to capture something special and practice a lot, it might not happen straight off but eventually, success will come.
