Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on a day trip in Uyuni, Bolivia. The town is on the edge of the world's largest salt flat and understandably draws a lot of tourists. It also was an outpost on the rail system for the silver trade, which now has resulted in a large number of abandoned trains - which has been termed the train graveyard.
Time
This stop was late morning, at the beginning of a full day exploring the region.
Lighting
Just natural light on a sunny day, nothing special.
Equipment
This was taken on my Canon Rebel T6i, with the 10-18mm wide angle. This is probably one of the first photos I took that really helped me appreciate subjects being enhanced by the wide field of view.
Inspiration
An appreciation for a chance to explore a new place. In this particular location, the magnitude of scale is just overwhelming, so replicating a little of that feeling with the wide angle was really important to the emotion of the picture.
Editing
Post-processing here consisted of conversion to black-and-white and basic levels adjustments in Lightroom.
In my camera bag
I tend to use either telephoto or wide angle lenses more to exaggerate
Feedback
Pay attention to how a place makes you feel and think about how you might be able to enhance that with the shot you go for.
