Behind The Lens

Location
This shot was taken at Union 206 Studios in Virginia. The model is the talented and beautiful Leia Hilton. The Union 206 studio is one of my favorite places to shoot. It is wide open so you have lots of room to experiment. We had her on a table covered with a black cloth.
Time
It was around 7pm before we got started. We usually do late night shoots at this studio. That way we can crank up the speakers and have some fun.
Lighting
We used (2) Alien Bees and I think it was (2) strip boxes for this shot. It took me about 30min to adjust the lighting. We angled them just right to outline her features perfectly. I had to match the lighting on the wings in post-production.
Equipment
For this shot I used my Canon EOS Rebel T5i. I also used 2 Alien Bees.
Inspiration
Just like the other (2) images from this series, I wanted to work with a fitness model. I wanted someone with perfect muscle tone and body shape. Leia is one of the best fitness/sports models around so we booked a session. I must say that I was not disappointed. Her muscle tone was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to do 3 or 4 different poses and outfits so I would have lots of material to work with in post-production. I ended up with 3 spectacular images which I used to create some beautiful artwork with.
Editing
I did a lot of post-production. This shoot gave me a lot to work with in Photoshop. These images where used to create some composite artwork so the post-production took about 2 hours for this piece. This had to have been one of my most productive photo shoots ever. Usually I plan on a theme, find a model, do the shoot and create the artwork. However, sometimes I like to look for a certain model or look and have the images tell me what to edit. What I mean is, I like to look at an image and have it tell me what to do with it. I know that might sound weird to some so I will try to give you an example. This image was taken as she was preparing to flip her hair back for a motion shot. When I looked at this image in post-production, it looked as if she was a sad angel who lost hope for humanity. So I created some wings and matched the lighting to create a powerful piece of art.
In my camera bag
When I go out to shoot, I want to be ready for anything. So I bring a big and heavy camera backpack. In this bag I have the following: Cannon 5D Mark III, Tamron 70 – 200 Lens, Tamron 15 – 30 Ultra-wide angle Lens, Tamron 90mm Macro Lens, Canon 24 – 105 Lens, (2) Canon 600EX-RT, and the Canon ST-E3-RT. In my SUV I will have: (2) Flash stands, Large 7ft tripod, Small 4ft tripod, (2) umbrellas, and (1) 5-1 reflector.
Feedback
A photographer never really knows what they are going to get out of a shoot. There is always a plan in mind, but it won’t always work out the way you want it to. My advice is to take advantage of these types of situations. What do I mean by this? Sometimes your model, lighting, or some other variable will begin to push your shot into a different direction. What I am telling you to do is go with it. Don’t always try to work against the flow of the project. Some of the best photos in the world where not planned at all. I always tell my friends “dysfunctional photo shoots produce happy accidents.”
