Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at North Queensferry, Fife, Scotland, UK - looking South over the Forth river with the Forth Road bridge in the background.
Time
This was taken just before 1:00pm - luckily the weather was its usual self here in Scotland, cloudy so no harsh sunlight to contend with.
Lighting
Natural light with a single speedlight in a small light modifier as a fill light to lift the shadows and give detail in the dress
Equipment
Canon 5d mk3 with my trusty 70-200mm. handheld. Canon Speedlight with pocket wizard flex trigger.
Inspiration
There's quite a few Ballerina shots around, so i wanted to do my own take on it.. hence the series Ballerina Ecosse, there are more to come in this series.
Editing
Lightroom basics, then into photoshop for skin retouching with a mono conversion in Alien Skin Exposure 7 not much else.
In my camera bag
I tend to shoot primes more often when I'm doing my own shoots, however I wanted the compression that the 70-200 gives me.. so the bag was over full with primes and the zoom, along with a canon 6d as back up body, a pair of speed lights and pocket wizard tiggers..
Feedback
This shot was more down to the model, doing this move, pretty hard to do, en pointe.. and me capturing it.. I think in hind sight i could have composed it better with the bridge tower being further along. however it was a difficult move to capture and getting the one shot that was good, with the slight lift of the dress by the wind makes it all work..
