This Cheetah slowed down for a moment to take a look at an interesting subject: A human with a camera, and external flash (me). Since I was tracking him with my camera, that's all it took to make this shot possible.

Shot RAW (digital negative) with a Canon EOS Digtal Rebel XTi, and Canon 70-200mm f/4.0L USM lens, a B&W UV MRC (Multi Reflective Coated) Filter attached.

My camera and lens were mounted on a Giottos MM 9180 5-Section Pro Monopod with a Giottos MH-1301 Pro Series II Ballhead with a MH-656 Arca Swiss Quick Release attached, using a remote shutter release, with MLU (mirror lock up) to avoid camera shake.

Camera Settings: Aperture Priority, F-Stop: f/4.0, ISO Speed Rating: 100, Focal Length: 188.0mm (the upper limit of my lens), Shutter Speed: 1/100 sec.

Flash (Sigma EF 500 DG ST Electronic Flash, with a Harbor Digital Design Ultimate Black Box and Diffuser Dome) was fired.

Image was manipulated using Adobe Photoshop CS2 with the Camera Raw v4.2 plug-in.

"Thanks to your invaluable contribution with this free stock image, you helped me make my biggest dream come true. I'm a writer and after having many requests for help refused (not to mention the refused manuscripts!) I decided to do eveything myself. With your help, I was able to do it. I made a beautiful cover and a pretty website to promote it. Click on this link -- -- to learn more about my project and see how your image was used. This link -- -- will take you to the site. It's in Portuguese, but there are - thanks to kind people like you - plenty of beautiful pictures to look at. Thank you again. ♥"
