Behind The Lens


I took this photo during a fashion film festival in Paris. I saw this dark empty room with a light coming from above and decided to explore it with my models.


Sometime during the evening.


So the only source of light on this picture is a lamp from the ceiling !


I used Nikon D780 with 50mm lens


I knew Camille for a few years already and had a pleasure to work with her previously but it was a big surprise to run into her during the festival, where she introduced me to her gorgeous mom ; they are both professional models. I instantly decided that I need to take a picture of them together even if it is inside and not in my usual natural light and nature environment.


I used Photoshop for color editing with curves.

In my camera bag

I always have my Nikon D780 and 50mm lens.


Don't be afraid to shoot in an unexplored territory, even if the light is ugly and your models and you weren't ready. It took me only 2-3 minutes to experiment but I managed to get a few beautiful pictures. And don't be scared to ask your models to follow you in your game, they will also probably enjoy the struggle and maybe even will have a great laugh !
