This photo was a combination of luck and
experience. It was the last day of the Kando trip and there was word that there were a few wolves on the location and I really want an opportunity to photograph them. I woke up really early at the crack of dawn, I waited and waited, I had my camera in burst mode and eventually, in a split second, the wolf was looking right at me and I hit the shutter button and there was just a split second where my heart jumped and I was like ‘Did I get it? Did I get it?’ I used the Sony a7r Mark 2 at the time
and Sony FE 24-70 mm F2.8 G because I had to make a few compromises with aperture & also the lighting conditions I was dealing with. I chose to just go with a hundredth of a second
and the image still came out sharp which is due to the embody stabilization that I really love. It’s the shot, it’s the shot I really wanted and I’m so happy that I was prepared to capture it.
