Behind The Lens

This was taken in the railyard in Clovis New Mexico
This was taken very late in the afternoon
It was a mostly cloudy day and lighting was pretty muted
This was taken with a Canon EOS RP and a 24-240mm lens
We were just passing through and the old engine caught my eye
This was massaged slightly and converted to mono using Lightroom
In my camera bag
These days my 'walk about' setup is a Canon RP Mirrorless with a 24-240mm lens, but I'll also carry a 5D Mk III with any number of lenses if I'm looking to shoot something specific. I do have a couple of crop sensor bodies if I want a bit more reach, the extra magnification from the 1.6 crop factor helps there. I'm usually looking for cool things at random while traveling, so I often don't plan shots beforehand - I'm a pretty impromptu/opportunistic photographer. I've found I spend the most time with various prime lenses or some sort of super-zoom so I don't have to changes lenses out in the open.
You never know what you'll find while traveling
