Behind The Lens

Location
At a friends house at a pumpkin carving contest. Anytime friends get together emotion flows. As a photographer I try to be ready for these moments.
Time
My best guess is we arrived approximately 6 PM, early enough to get all of the food and the contest preparations in order.
Lighting
I was experimenting with shutter speed and flash compensation, wanting to trying to darken the ambient light
Equipment
Nikon D7000 with a Nikon SB-700 flash unit mounted on the camera.
Inspiration
The woman facing me is such a wonderful and loving human. Her expressions of love and friendship are truly heartfelt. I was attempting to capture that...
Editing
Adobe Camera RAW, and then Silver efx Pro 2 by Nik software. With that I pretty much just de-saturated and added a little lens falloff.
In my camera bag
These days I usually carry a Nikon D810 with a Nikon 24-70mm F/2.8G and a Nikon D600 with a Nikon 16-35mm F/4VR I carry two SB-700s for flash needs and a Sigma 50mm F/1.4 Art lens for shallow DOF shots.The Sigma is truly astounding. My Nikon 70-200mm F/4 VR gets some use as well...
Feedback
As soon as you walk into a room with this kind of potential set your camera, and take a couple of test shots even of objects, to see if you're in the ballpark. I like to be ready.
