Behind The Lens

Location

I captured this photograph in Masai Mara, Kenya. We were watching a pride of more that 50 lions.

Time

This photo was captured in the morning, around 10:30am. They were resting after a big meal.

Lighting

They had been laying in the shade, but the sun had started moving, so they were not longer shade. The big lion was getting up to find more shade.

Equipment

I captured this photo with a Canon 5D Mark 4, a Canon 100-400 lens with a canon 1.4x extender.

Inspiration

I was on my first safari, and we happened upon this beautiful pride.

Editing

I shoot in RAW, so I did some light editing in Lightroom and photoshop. I enhanced it to make the lions stand out a bit more since they are very camouflaged in their surroundings. a

In my camera bag

I keep Canon 70-200, and a 55-105 with me. I also like my 50mm, but didn’t take it with me to Africa.

Feedback

Be patient, and enjoy the beauty.
