Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at a studio in Hockenheim, Germany (yes, where the F1-racetrack is) :-D It ws my 5th studio session I have ever done.
Time
It was an "afterwork shooting" at an evening during the week, which I did together with another photographer, an close friend of mine. We booked the model Chamila and the studio for 3 hours. The result was overwelming. Chamila provided very good posing. My friend, who is very expierience in people shootings, was helping me with the light and postprocessing.
Lighting
To achive the low key effect, we were using a Beautydish with a honey comb. The skin of the model was oiled with baby skinn oil.
Equipment
I am always using in the studio my Nikon D800. My favorite lens is almost 20 years old now: Nikkor 105mm/2.8, which is providing incredible sharpness. The flash light was a Priolight flash light with 500Ws.
Inspiration
I have seen a lot of so called body arts photos. All were low-key photos and were showing nude people without showing "to much". For me the most erotic photo is not showing everything, it is showing enough to start the imagination in your head :-D I wanted to create a "sculpture" showing the beauty of human body with symmetry.
Editing
Yes, of course here was done a lot of post-processing work. As tools I use Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik-Collection. First I cleaned the skin, then I smoothed it a little bit. With the NIK detail-extractor I highlighted a little bit the hair. Tonal contrast was increasing the low key effect and was giving the dark contrasts. The photo was then switched to black and white. To make the symmetry even more perfect, we were using the liquid filter of photo shop. At the end the dodge and burn method was used to make the picture more crisp.
In my camera bag
I am using my Nikon D800 always, when I am in the studio. My favorite lens is Nikkor 105mm/f2.8. Sometimes I am using Nikkor 50mm/1.8 or Nikkor 28/2.8. Rarely I am using zoom lenses. Outside I use in addition an mecablitz 50 AF-1 digital, a Makroblitz-Kit R1C1 by Nikon. As lenses I am using a AF-S NIKKOR 80–400 mm 1:4,5–5,6G ED VR, which is fabulous! My tripod is a Gitzo series 2 with an Arca Swiss D4.
Feedback
I have done this photo together with my friend: I was shooting, he was advising the model with the posing to achieve the symmetry. It is hard to do it alone: You have to positioning yourselve at the surface, looking through the camera and make sure that you are everywhere in level. The other person is then correcting the posing that this is abolutely in symmetry. Take your time for the light. This shot was not done in 5 minutes. It was hard for the model to hold the position, so first adjust your light and then take care about the posing.
