Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in my neighbors yard
Time
evening
Lighting
This was shot with only natural light
Equipment
Canon 5DMKIII Canon 50 f/1.2
Inspiration
This was a candid of Cassa embracing her cat after she had found it and thought it was lost
Editing
Yes, I changed the image to B&W in Photoshop and cover the background area by using a black paintbrush in Photoshop. I also enhanced the hair by painting it in PS
In my camera bag
Canon 5DMKIII, Canon 50 f/1.2, Canon Speedlight, old style Gary Fong Diffuser, Ice Light. I also use a tactical flash light.
Feedback
Just have your camera ready for these moments. I have been photographing Cassa Marie since she was 4 (she is now 16) and so it helps to have a natural relationship with your subject to where they are comfortable with you nearby and have become complacent about a camera being pointed at them. Cassa is also a natural though and never stops to 'pose' which I think ruins the mood. She appears in my pictures as she really is in life which speaks more to the viewer than a subject who is self conscious and looks like they are being photographed. I have been fortunate to have such a natural 'model' living near by and one who loves the whole process!
