Behind The Lens

Location

Austin, Texas

Time

Afternoon

Lighting

I used a beauty dish.

Equipment

Canon 1DS Mark II with 85mm 1.2 lens, Elinchrom Ranger Flash

Inspiration

This photo was taken in my back yard and did not have a particular purpose to shoot it.

Editing

Post processing includes some burning and black and white conversion using Silver Efex Pro.

In my camera bag

Canon 6D, Elinchrom Ring Flash, Elinchrom Ranger batteries with wireless 85mm, 16-35, 100-400.

Feedback

High powered flash to black out the background. Single source light (in this case the Beauty Dish)
