Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. This area of the city is the Historical Site, with buildings dating from the 16th century.
Time
The picture was taken around 5:30pm
Lighting
I enjoy taking pictures in the early to late evening where the sun starts to hit sweet tones of yellow, oranges and teals.
Equipment
This was shot in a Leica Q-P with a 28mm fixed lens. No other equipment was used.
Inspiration
The man from the picture was leaning comfortably enjoying the view of an historical building at the same time the winter weather in Puerto Rico was at 74 F degree. Which is an absolute perfect winter weather. I felt this man was grateful to be there at that time and what really gave that aways was seeing how relax his beautifully tattooed hands looked so chill and comfortable.
Editing
Just a bit of processing in Lightroom. I like to make the necessary adjustment in my camera for when I take the pictures this way the editing in Lightroom would be minimal. I also meticulously adjust highlights and shadows.
In my camera bag
Always my Leica Q-P with it’s fixed lens. What I love about this camera is that you avoid focusing in lenses and only need to focus on taking a good picture. Looking for subjects or scenarios where they are always happening every second. With this simple set up being spontaneous is everything and everywhere.
Feedback
My best advice is to travel. Traveling is the most rewarding experience life can bring. Studying just by looking at the world that surrounds you and being able to capture that in a picture is a beautiful magic. For me my pictures are memories of my life’s movie.
