Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in the District Wharf in Washington, D.C. A photo walk was sponsored by Fujifilm and District Camera, led by famous street dance photographer, Omar Z. Robles.
Time
This was taken before the sun had gotten too harsh, during a beautiful August morning.
Lighting
All natural light, with the hard sun beating down
Equipment
This was taken with the Fuji XH-1 and Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 (85mm equivalent focal length for full frame users).
Inspiration
It was a sponsored photo walk I attended. The great thing about a photo walk is you can have a dozen photographers photographing the same subject, and get a different result with each one. This was my take in this particular instance.
Editing
I shoot RAW, so that allows me a greater freedom with post processing. All I really did was set white balance to cloudy to warm it up a bit.
In my camera bag
My everyday carry bag is an Ona Bowery. Inside it is a Fuji XT-3, XH-1, with 23mm f/1.4, and 56mm f/1.4. If I need extra reach, then I swap out my bag with an Ona Brixton, and also toss in my Fuji 50-140 f/2.8 lens.
Feedback
Check for photo walks in your area. Contact various dance schools to see if any would be interested in collaborating for photo shoots.
