Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photograph in Afghanistan.
Time
This was taken at around noon.
Lighting
The lighting was harsh and that is why I decided to take this in an HDR. I wanted to give this image a dramatic feel.
Equipment
I used a Canon 1ds Mark iii.
Inspiration
These operators work hard and face the enemy head-on. I wanted to make some images so they can have for the rest of their lives. I hoped that these images will bring them back to time.
Editing
This is a three images combined to make an HDR photograph. I used Photomatix for post-processing.
In my camera bag
Now I have Fuji GFX 50R with 63mm f/2.8, Sony Rx1Rii and a Sony A7R IV with 55mm and 16-35mm lens
Feedback
Enlist in the military as a combat photographer and you might get to make something like this.
