I was on holiday in Cumbria with my family when we visited a local zoo.
Whenever we go to zoos we try to visit the animals at feeding times, and here we waited for the lion’s lunch. The area was quiet so I moved around until I could see the potential for a shot and get as close to the lion as I could.
I then had to be patient and wait for a good composition and to ensure I framed the shot the way I wanted to. Most importantly was ensuring the focus point was in the right place.
I used a Nikon D300 with a 70-200mm lens at 200mm with an aperture of f2.8 and an ISO of 250, giving a shutter speed of 1/1000sec.
