Thank you all. This was a fun shoot and the model was amazing to work with. Not a professional and not intentional with her poses. Made the feel I was looking for so much easier to achieve.

Behind The Lens

This photo was taken on the streets of Roanoke, VA. The model was a true old school punk rock gal. I snapped one photo and it was perfect. Probably the shortest shoot ever.
Pre-noon. I shoot with all natural lighting so my worst enemy is the sun when it’s directly over me. I always shoot early AM before noon or evening before sun down.
Not really. I shoot with all natural lighting because I love the feel. I watch out for harsh sunlight and too much shadow.
Canon 6D. 35mm Prime lens.
My upbringing was in the punk rock culture. I met Brandy and instantly knew she could help bring to life a piece of my history. She was a natural and a fun spirit.
Yes. I use Lightroom and PS. For this specific shot I did a small amount of hdr toning to add to the grungy punk rock feel.
In my camera bag
My camera, my prime lens, a few batteries and my eyes. The rest really is with picking the right individual to shoot with.
Your lens and the right time of day are key if you plan to shoot with natural lighting. Other than that pick individuals to shoot with that are fun and get into the shoot. I prefer non-professionals. They are more natural during the shoot and so intentional with forced poses.
