Behind The Lens

Location
I took this picture in La Tuna Canyon, California.
Time
This was in the early afternoon on September 2nd 2017. It is hard to believe as the sky was dark from all the smoke.
Lighting
I was around that area early in the morning to catch the sunrise when I realized that the fire was really close. I learned later that day when watching the news that there were more than 1,000 firefighters from the immediate region and throughout California that were battling " the largest fire in Los Angeles history." Since the fire started the day before on Friday afternoon, it has burned more than 7,000 acres, forced residents to evacuate from their homes, shut down an interstate and sent massive plumes of smoke into the air.
Equipment
This was shot with a canon 7D MII with a canon 70-200 F2.8 handheld
Inspiration
I have always enjoyed fire fighters pictures, and this was an opportunity to take pictures of the fires. Fire can be really scary how fast they can spread and in the same time it is fascinating to see how they are handled. In this case the LAFD Erickson Aircrane helitanker is capable of dropping 2,600 gallons of water per drop which was a tremendous help in containing the fire pretty quickly.
Editing
Cropped the picture
In my camera bag
Canon 7D MII canon 70-200 F2.8 and canon 24-105
Feedback
This was my first time shooting a fire, I do not have any advice yet on that subject.
