Sweeeeet Michelle! Very well done.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was actually taken against a white wall in my house.
Time
The time of day was later in the evening. The model and I both just finished our day jobs.
Lighting
The only light I used was a cheap 5 bulb soft box I bought from Amazon.
Equipment
Canon EOS 5D Mark ii with 24-105mm lens and a soft box.
Inspiration
Lies, and when it comes from someone you care about the beauty you saw in them is only on the surface. What lies underneath is the real mystery.
Editing
I took two photos initially: One of the model, and one with her hold the film to her mouth. In Photoshop I erased the space around the film, copied her mouth from the other, and pasted it in. I also boosted the exposure, and color of her red lips to make it pop.
In my camera bag
I usually carry my Canon 6D and Canon 5D Mark II (now IV) with a 24-105mm lens, as well as my 70-200mm lens. I always bring the 17-40mm lens just in case.
Feedback
Think outside the box. Especially when you’re feeling emotional. Find a way to show what you’re feeling in abstract ways.
