Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in a studio in turin, the city where I live . in this study I did a photography course with the firm "Hope photo courses of photography"
Time
During a photo shoot with a model, I had the idea to have with me my keffiyeh Jordanian and I thought .. "Why not?!?!?" We were late but she was kind enough to give me a few click! was taken in 11 December 2014, at 11.50 pm .
Lighting
We used four light in the scene. I was very lucky because the lights were made by our masters, the model was beautiful, and I just had to put into practice their great teachings! with a little fantasy of course..
Equipment
I used a Nikon D700 with Nikon AF zoom nikkor 80-200 f 2.8D ED, free hand
Inspiration
I've always been fascinated by photography and consequently also portray the subject. Moreover, those eyes so deep I had already thought a few days before the possibility of making a picture in which I could enhance the beauty and mystery hidden behind a keffiyeh. so I tried!
Editing
I used a normal process of post production. I tried to highlight the main subject , the eyes. and created a filter with a kind of nuance that goes upward fading. The colors I tried to make them less bright and vivid as possible, to create a picture quite balanced. Finally I converted all in black and white. trying to orient myself to a portrait hy key.
In my camera bag
I love taking pictures, but my real passion is the landscape. For this in my backpack will never miss: Nikon D700 ; Nikon 18-35 f 3.5 g ; nikon 80-200D ED f 2.8 ; the tripod ; filters to lengthen the time of installation ; the remote control to use the bulb mode ; flash and triggher because you never know!
Feedback
The only advice I can give is to always keep the camera steady and try to avoid movements, for this kind of photography. The imagination must never miss .. For the rest ... shoot shoot and shoot. just so you can improve your photography. And remember, you love black and white!
