Superb portrait...

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo itself was taken in my dining room in my home in Liverpool, push the dining table to the end of the room and knocked together a makeshift studio!
Time
It was taken during the day, the light wasn't really an issue as I was using speed lights to create any light I needed
Lighting
It was a simple lighting setup with a Nikon SB910 speedlight on manual setting, with a small portable soft box on a stand positioned just above my son
Equipment
Nikon D7100, Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR2, Nikon sb 910 and he lighting equipment mentioned already
Inspiration
I do a lot of mountaineering and hiking, in relation to this I read a lot of magazines about this subject. I love the advertisements for brands like the north face etc, so sort of decided to create my own, I dragged my son down of his Xbox and stuck his North Face Parker on him, he wasn't to happy but that's what I wanted, I wanted him to look like a cocky teenager who sort of thinks he could take on anything.
Editing
I process all my RAW files in Adobe Lightroom, add a little sharpness etc, I try not to go to crazy.
In my camera bag
I have a few bits, my D7100, a range of Nikon glass (nothing to expensive apart from my 70-200vr2), I have Nikon SB910 speedlights, a range of Colkin filters, and my tripod
Feedback
Most of my photography is experimental as I am self taught so, my advice is just get your gear out and take photos!
