Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Red Rock Canyon, Nevada
Time
I believe this was shot at around 11am, and it was already scorching hot out. Definitely one of my favourite shoots to date.
Lighting
Since I was shooting in a national park, I couldn't bring a large setup. To light this I had my assistant hold a large reflector, using the gold side to give a nice sun-kissed tone.
Equipment
Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
Inspiration
I had seem a lot of great photos being taken at Red Rock Canyon so when I was visiting Las Vegas, I had to go. A designer friend lent me some of her pieces which were very elegant and soft. For this shot, I wanted to showcase the elegance of the dress against a tough environment.
Editing
I use Alien Skin's Exposure plug-in in Photoshop, and play around with the settings until I get the desired look. This process is great for maintaining tonal continuity when retouching editorials.
In my camera bag
When it comes to equipment, I'm quite minimal. I have my Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon 70-200mm 2.8, Canon 24-105mm and a Canon 50mm 1.4. I also carry several different sizes of reflectors.
Feedback
When shooting in a national park, be sure to research the place first to see if a permit is required. I did get into some trouble, or rather thought I got into some trouble shooting here.
