Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on vacation near Holguin, Cuba. This lady was selling things outside a restaurant we had lunch at. On our way out I asked if I could take a photo and she smiled and posed for me. I gave her some pesos and she seemed pleased.
Time
Early afternoon, shortly after lunch, in bright sunlight - pretty typical for Cuba.
Lighting
I liked the way the subject was highlighted against the darker background.
Equipment
I took this shot with my Canon T2i with a 50-250 mm zoom lens.
Inspiration
This lady's spirit and expression was impressive - the cigar was an interesting touch.
Editing
Just minimal contrast and exposure.
In my camera bag
I now have my T2i with a Sigma 10-20 mm lens and my main camera is a Sony RX 10 lll.
Feedback
I seldom photograph people but her uniqueness caught my eye - that tends to work for me in all the areas of photography where I like to practice.
