Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Granada, Spain.
Time
It was taken in the afternoon of a very hot day in September 2015.
Lighting
This photo as well as the other almost one hundred that I took of this beautiful dancer, were all taken using the natural light, no flash. It was a very bright day plenty sun and no clouds at all.
Equipment
I used mu Canon 7D with a 28-135 mm lens, no tripod, no flash
Inspiration
The Flamenco Dancer is fantastic very inspirational. She was dancing on a small piece of wood that gave to his movements the classic sound of the Flamenco and she had only three musician that, out of the photo, were playing for her with a guitar, an improvised drum made with a wood box and a lady clapping, the typical Flamenco music.
Editing
This photo was taken in RAW, I only made it B&W with Photoshop. Not any additional edition.
In my camera bag
I am a Canon User, in addition to the 28-135 mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS lens I carry a 75-300 mm 1:4-5.6 EF USM zoom lens and a EF-S 24 mm 1:2.8 all also Canon. also I have three different tripods, a remote control and several different filters
Feedback
I have only one advice, that I do not always follow myself only to regret it later: "be prepared, especially if you like street or spontaneous photography, what I love the most". You must not miss a good capture because you do not have your camera with you or you have it inconveniently stowed.
