You have a beautiful gallery...thanks for sharing!

Behind The Lens

Location
This images was taken in the living room and the background was darkened.
Time
Doesn't really matter if it was in doors.
Lighting
2 flash guns at an angle on either side of the model...
Equipment
I used a nikon d200 and a 50mm nikon
Inspiration
We had an afternoon to come up with a mean looking image and to tie a scarf the model's nose and mouth seemed to be the way forward.
Editing
Yes quite a lot here. Used hdr software. Then darkened the background. Then put it through hdr again and used photoshop.
In my camera bag
I now have a d800, my trusted 50mm 300mm f4 and a flash.
Feedback
Trial by error here. Just make sure you do have good Light.
