Behind The Lens

Location
This image has been taken in the Casinò de la Vallee, in Saint Vincent, Italy.
Time
During the afternoon. The time of the day was not important since it's an interior shoot all taken with artificial lights. The important hing was just the use of the Casinò when it was closed to the public.
Lighting
Lighting was set using two flashguns, one with an umbrella and one with a softbox, and exposure was set to get enough ambient light from the Casinò areas.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D700 with 24-70 mm f:2,8, mounted on a Manfrotto 190 Pro tripod
Inspiration
I had to promote a Jewelry brand, and its distinctive marketing icon was represented by a dice. And i had the idea of developing a whole story around that: the story of two women fighting for the same man, and deciding to solve the dispute with a dice game. It took a long time to plan this photo shoot, i had to find the right models and the right location to work. I needed two women and i imagined a black skinned one and a red haired one. They had to be beautiful and also able to express a sort of dominance, aggressivity. The man had to be good looking and able to express confusion and bewilderment. The location was harder but finally i found it! What can be better than a casino? This is the most important picture of the sequence, with the two contenders facing each other and their "victim" in the background
Editing
Some post processing has been made, to get skin softening while maintaining texture, and to get the right contrast level
In my camera bag
I normally carry my camera and a couple of lenses, those that are more important for the kind of images i have to take. Here i only brought a 24-70 mm and a 85 mm f:1,4 Then i have plenty of memory, and plenty of batteries, one or two flasguns with their tripod, and remote triggers. My choice is not to have any cables, to be free to move very quickly
Feedback
The most important thing is imagination, all the result should be figured out before taking the photos. Accurate planning is crucial, every frame should already be imagined, the technical problems foreseen and adrressed, but be prepared to face the last time problems as well. And take care in choosing the right models, do not think that beauty is the main factor! They need to work well together, be expressive and they must understand the final result very well, because they are essential to achieve it!!! Of course a very good MUA and Hair Styler are essential as well.
