Behind The Lens

Sierra de las Minas, Guatemala. Rìo Negro.
11:00 am
This is a natural light. I took this one through helicopter ride. The mountains and environment is extraordinary.
Canon 40D, 28-135 mm
I received an invitation as a gift for my Birthday to have a ride in helicopter to Alta Verapaz in Guatemala. Was my big opportunity and I choosed deep Nature area. The river is the largest in the region. I love to take chances out of my portrait routine to get some inspiration.
I used RAW DPP Canon software since I normally use a non-destructive adjustment from the original image. Did some adjustments on light balance, contrast, and increased a little bit clarity.
In my camera bag
Canon 7D or Canon 40D, 28-135mm, 70-200mm. and a small Sony NEX R5 as back up. I choose two lenses in my backpack at the most. Sometimes I choose just one lens if I will be taking for example Street Photography. Extra batteries and memory card.
Do not waste time chaging lenses. You must choose the lens according to the situation, so you don`t miss the moment. I normally use one lens. Take extra batteries and enough card space. Always take a chance to get out of the routine to get inspiration. Depending on the circumstances, if it is a Studio Photo Shoot, then you can carry all your lenses, lights, filters you want.
