Great !!!!!

You have given 2020 a positive swing that is really (nice) positive, a contribution to the Year 2020 Collection. As always, the competition will be tough, which, as an added consequence, makes the victory taste very sweet. Good luck and probably for the … time: Happy New Year and stay healthy in 2021!

Cool photo! Congrats on being a people's choice challenge award winner!

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in my house, in Buenos Aires, during the quarantine period by COVID-19. I saw my girlfriend concentrated reading and it occurred to me to take a photo with some lights that reflect the magic of reading.
Time
It was getting dark and, being an indoor photo, it was enough to stick some Christmas lights on the book and set the scene with a led light to give it more introspection. Then set up the camera at a slow speed and that was the result.
Lighting
Despite the fact that the light that gives magic to the photo is the path that the book leaves opening, I consider that it is always important to set the rest of the scene with another light that complements the main one. That ends up giving the shot a more interesting result.
Equipment
This was shot on a Canon 5D Mark III, with a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens and a tripod, to be able to set up the camera at a slow speed.
Inspiration
I think the main reason was the quarantine that the world was forced to abide by. With so much time at home, and time to stop the whirlwind of the current world that accelerates us so much in normal times, some ideas emerged to represent calm and introspection. Putting your cell phone and TV aside a little more and nourishing yourself from reading that makes us imagine other scenarios.
Editing
I always do post-processing of my pictures. I consider that all parts of the process are important, since how you set up the camera values when you shoot, to the digital treatment with the RAW files. I like to give the last touch to the pic by doing color correction, and correcting details that make prettier what it was already pretty. Personally, I love working with sharpness, shadows, contrasts, gradients, and warm and vibrant colors in my pics.
In my camera bag
I have varied equipment. As a travel photographer, I always try to cover all the focal range, from wide to telephoto, to be able to work at any distance. I have a Canon 5D Mark III body and I use a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8ii lens for portraits and landscapes and a Canon 70-300mm f/4-5.6 lens for wildlife, to be there when I'm not close enough and get a great shot. Nowadays, having a drone is a plus to have a different point of view, so I have a DJI Mavic Pro for aerial shots. Finally, to be an all-terrain photographer, I have a GO PRO Hero 7. Up to this point, this are my essentials. In other hand, I like to experiment with other kind of photography like macro, for which I use a macrotubes with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, and I work with architecture, by using a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 .
Feedback
Take advantage of time, not fall asleep. If the world is putting us in a position where it doesn't let us do normal life, try to be creative with the things we have at home, watch tutorials from those who know the most, and learn new tricks to translate into our own ideas.
