Behind The Lens

Location
In Paris, XXth district. My friend Andrey Das and I, are very fond of street art. As soon as I saw this wall, I asked Andrey to come and do his art.
Time
Around 7pm in april. As soon as Andrey started to make some flames, everyone in the building in front was watching. The cars in the street also stopped. All the clients of the bar in front were outside staring and taking photos or videos with their smartphones. Andrey had a problem with his belt and a guy from the bar just took off his own belt for Andrey to have one for the photo!
Lighting
Just natural light. We just had to wait for the sun to stop hitting the wall.
Equipment
As usual, my trusty Nikon D750 with a Tamron 24 70mm /2.8 VC. Handheld.
Inspiration
Street art is an ongoing source of inspiration for Andrey and I. We have already done several photos with street art as background before this one.
Editing
Adobe ACR as Raw processor. Photoshop to remove a street lamp and clean the wall.
In my camera bag
My Nikon with a 24 70mm, or just a "nifty fifty"…
Feedback
For Fire Photography, safety is not an option. There is always a guy with a special training for safety in my photoshoots.
