Behind The Lens

This was taken in downtown Dallas near the arts district. There is quite a bit of construction happening in the area.
This was shot in the afternoon, not too late in the day
The sun was high but behind me a bit, I made sure I wasn't getting a strong reflection from the mirrored buildings
I used a Canon 70D and Tamron 16-300mm lens for this short. It was taken hand-held
I was just walking around after getting lunch at the line of food trucks nearby and thought it would make an interesting shot :-)
I enhanced lighting and colors a bit in Lightroom, but not a lot of processing was done.
In my camera bag
In my camera bag I normally carry a Canon 70D with a Tamron 16/300mm mounted and a 5D Mk III with any number of lenses ranging from a 8mm diagonal fisheye to a Sigma 200-500mm telephoto, depending on what I'll be shooting. I'm usually looking for cool things at random while traveling, so I don't get to plan a lot of shots beforehand - I've found I spend the most time with various prime lenses and the 17-300mm Tamron though, the Tamron's range lets you capture almost anything on the fly and reduces the need for lens changes out in the open
I didn't do a lot of setup on this shot, it was pretty spur of the moment...
