Smelling the light

Polar Bear - Wildlife photography course

This photograph was created with the Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM lens (Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM review), the Canon EOS 5D mark III, handheld while seating on the ground. Have a look at the equipment I typically carry with me.

The photograph above was created around the West shore of the Hudson Bay, in Canada. Does not it look like this Polar Bear is smelling the light? After feasting on berries on the ground, this bear started to rise and point its nose up to smell its next adventure around sunset time. Note that in back-lit situations such as this one, it is usually best to create a silhouette type photograph. To do so, one needs to underexpose by a couple of stops, and adjusting the curves in Photoshop also gives a bit of help.

I invite you to have a peek at the Bird & Wildlife Photography website to see other beautiful image creations.
