How did you get this shot?

I was in Burundi on assignment, and luckily my hotel room was near the shore of Lake Tanganyika. I woke up early one morning to try and catch the sunrise, and that’s when I met this young man who was collecting sand from the lake to sell. I asked if I could take a picture of him, and he agreed. It was then up to me to get the right shot. I used a Canon 6D with the 24-70mm f4 lens, and an ISO of 640 and a shutter speed of 1/200 seconds and an aperture of f11.

I find the best way to capture these kinds of shots is to allow the subject to be in their element.
