While I'm still procrastinating on the second half of my Cuba blog, I will share another one of my favorite images for now from the trip. For this one, we were in Trinidad (no this wasn't taken in the rainforest of anything, this was at our Airbnb).
After we got slammed by a hurricane while hiking down a mountain, we hurried back to where we were staying in the city center. The Cuban government regulates the amount of water each household gets every week, so the whole time we were there, we were showering under a leaky faucet (First world problems, I know). Throughout the torrential downpour, this was a perfect opportunity for us to bathe. This was probably one of the best showers I've ever taken in my life and I felt like I had to document it. I took out the Zeiss Batis 85mm so I could shoot from a distance and began firing away to get some portraits. This might actually be my favorite shot of the whole trip and I'm truly happy I was able capture it.
This was tough to shoot because it was so dim and I needed as much light as possible to freeze the rain. I should've had a higher iso but it still came out great. It was also tough because the camera kept focusing on the rain drops splashing off their faces instead of the faces themselves.
