Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on a hiking trail in Burbank, California. It's one of those "everyday" places that most people see without truly seeing and then forget about, so I never have to fight off other photographers as you do for many locations.
Time
As a natural light photographer, I love to shoot when the light is soft. This photograph was taken approximately 20 minutes before sundown.
Lighting
Many photographers love to shoot in what is called the Golden Hour because of it's soft, even, warm light. I didn't want the branches' shadows falling on her face - I just wanted the simplicity of having soft light so I could make the focus on the falling leaves.
Equipment
This was shot with my Canon 5D Mark iii and Canon 85mm 1.2L lens. The shot was handheld and I do not use reflectors or flash.
Inspiration
I am a huge fan of the Pre-Raphaelite painters as am always inspired by the seasons, Autumn in particular with it's vibrant warm colors and movement (falling leaves). My model, with her pale skin and red hair, and the nature around me motivated me to create this.
Editing
Yes, I do a significant amount of post-processing work in order to give my work a painterly feel and add aspects to the art that will help me tell a story. I work in Photoshop, using my own actions, textures and overlays, including leaf overlays, to enhance my art.
In my camera bag
I always carry my Canon 5D Mark iii and my 4 favorite lenses, my Canon 85mm 1.2, 16-35mm 2.8, 70-200mm 2.8 lens and my Sigma Art 50mm 1.4. I do not use flash or reflectors. I adore my Shutterbag USA camera purse, it allows for me to carry my camera where ever I go.
Feedback
To capture something similar, I would highly recommend shooting when the light is soft and then have a friend to throw or shake leaves, if you are not lucky enough to have them naturally falling. My leaves are overlays, added in post, so I can color and place them exactly as I want to. (I do not consider this "cheating" any more than any other post processing technique, especially since I am a fine art photographer and am more interested in conveying a mood as a painting would, rather than documenting reality). Lastly, I used my own actions in Photoshop to create more vivid red and orange tones.
