Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Belchite near Zaragozza (Spain)
Time
At evening
Lighting
(I combined different exposures here)
Equipment
Canon EOS 1DX with EF8-15mm f/4L FISHEYE USM 15mm/ƒ/4/1/400s/ISO 100
Inspiration
I read about a small village with many ruins and stands as a memorial from the civil war in the 30th. in Spain It is a very soul touching experience to see this with your own eyes. You can see some more fotos from Belchite on my website: http://www.carlos-santero.com/essays/2016/02/belchite/ Between August 24 and September 7, 1937, loyalist Spanish Republican and rebel General Franco's forces in the Spanish Civil War fought the Battle of Belchite in and around the town. After 1939 a new village of Belchite was built adjacent to the ruins of the old, which remain a ghost town as a memorial to the war.
Editing
I do on all my pics a post-processing. Here I use different exposures from different day/night times to show the beauty of the building, because in a single nightshot you cannot do this. (Mayby with lightpainting, but not in this quality)
In my camera bag
In this case I only had my Canon EOS 1-DX with some wideangle lenses. It is very different. When I shot Portraits, I only have my Canon 1-DX and the 85mm 1.2 in my bag. If Iam on tour in nature with my VW-Bus, I put so many thing in my Bag (2 or 3 bags): Canon 1-DX and Canon 5D MKIII as reserve. Tripods 2 or 3 and a special gimbal for Panos. Enough memory cards. And some lenses: Canon EF 50mm 1,4 USM Sigma 20 mm F1,8 EX Canon EF 100-400mm L IS USM 15mm F2,8 EX DG Diagonal-Fisheye Tamron A007E SP 24-70 mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Canon 100 / 2,8L Macro IS USM Sigma 120-300 mm f2,8 Tamron SP AF 70-200 mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Canon 85mm 1,2 II L USM
Feedback
If you want to shot some specials like this, time is the most important thing.
