Behind The Lens

I took this photo in the Simon Bolivar park in the city of Bogota, in the dark forests that that park has
We took it with some friends at about 4 in the afternoon, while we practiced lighting with a speedlight with a different place than
As I said, we took it with a speedlight, in a practice that we did. In this case we mounted the light on a tripod and with a modifier, then with the help of a friend we put the light so that it bathed the model from above

But when I work portraits I prefer my Canon 6d Mark ii and lenses like the Canon 50 f / 1.8 or the Canon 24-105mm f / 4 L. They are my favorites. Now I have been carrying a Canon m50, which being lighter has sold me well to take street photos and do something new, also it is not as heavy as the other 2
Go out to look for very different places, know the limits of your city, make different plans, look for inspiration in nature, go exploring with great caution but curiosity, take advantage of ideas from your friends, have a community, look at photos from different sources and variants, no you limit yourself
