Behind The Lens

Location
I took it at Roosevelt Roads Navy Base in Ceiba, Puerto Rico, while filming the NBC's TV series CROSSBONES.
Time
10:30 in the morning
Lighting
Pure natural light.
Equipment
It was taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the EF16-35mm f/2.8L USM. No tripod. I borrowed that lens from the still photographer in the production, who was using one of my lenses while I was in the gun deck.
Inspiration
I lived and worked as an official photographer aboard El Galeón Andalucía for 20 months. In this particular moment we were shooting the battle between our ship (El Galeón) and the pirate ship. I had to wait in the gun deck with some other sailors, production staff and actors so it was a good chance to take some pictures behind the scenes. I remember that I was having a break because I also was acting as an extra on this episode and suddenly I saw the fore of the schooner trough one of the portholes and I just had a few seconds to shoot some pictures trying to get the perfect composition.
Editing
99.9% of the time I only work on Lightroom, so I did in this picture. It´s hard to believe that I found such perfect weather conditions that day, with this perfect sky, magical clouds, and a quiet no-waves water. I created an specific preset in Lr for the NBC´s Crossbones project and made the basic adjustments within the Develop Module. No Photoshop at all.
In my camera bag
I use to carry my 5D Mark III with the EF35mm f/1.4L USM and 50mm f/1.8. Now that I'm shooting concerts and events mainly I recently purchased an used 70-200mm f2.8 IS II. When I'm not on assignment I take my new Fujifilm X-T10 with me but now I'm starting to use it on my pro flow as well.
Feedback
What could I say? Just been at the right place in the right moment. When you take a picture like this you know that is unique.
