Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Hungary during my photography in the special hides of the photographer Bence MΓ‘tΓ©.
Time
I took this shot in January 2022 shortly after dark, around 6 p.m. That evening in a hide by a forest drinking station, I was lurking on the deer. Suddenly a snowstorm came, it was short but heavy. I shot this picture intentionally with a long exposure time to highlight the falling flakes and their density. However, heavy snowfall prevented a perfect reflection from the water surface.
Lighting
An additional backlight was used to photograph the animal's silhouette and radiant contours.
Equipment
Back then I was working with my mirrorless camera Nikon Z6II and the zoom lens Nikon Z 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6. I shot with a tripod, without a flash.
Inspiration
I am an amateur nature and wildlife photographer. I like to take pictures in bad weather and unusual light conditions. And it is the hides on Bence's farm that offers the possibility to photograph in the dark with additional front or back lighting of the scene. And for these extra light conditions, I am not lazy to travel up to 850 km.
Editing
I love natural photos. Realistic shots without big adjustments. I try to capture all my photos so I do not have to use the massive post-processing. I know it is very modern and trendy today, but I do not work with PS or LR or other editing software. I invoke my NEF only in original Nikon Studio NX or Nikon Capture and make only minor edits. Maybe my photos could be even more attractive, but I want to show real reality.
In my camera bag
The contents of my robust Tamrac bag are primarily a powerful Nikon digital camera that I can rely on in any weather. Not long ago I normally used a camera Nikon D6 and a backup camera Nikon D850. I normally use the Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/2.8 lenses. These "workers" are always with me. For wild animals and birds photography I need to pack "heavier weight" - now I'm using the zoom-lens Nikkor 180-400 f/4 (with TC 1.4x) and fast lenses Nikkor 300 f/2.8 and Nikkor 200 f/2. But in recent years I've been gradually upgrading to Nikon mirrorless Z cameras and the corresponding Z lenses. Currently it's the camera Z9 and Z8 plus the lenses Nikon Z 24-70 f/2.8, Nikon Z 70-200 f/2.8, Z 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 and Z 800 f/6.3.
Feedback
I prefer taking photos outside the interior of buildings, preferably in optimal lighting conditions without direct sunlight and without flash. But I also like to take pictures in bad weather (fog, rain, snow) and also in the dark. And it is photography from a hiding place using additional front or rear lighting that offers clear opportunities for photographing animals in the dark.
