Behind The Lens

Location
Taken just outside of Cicero, Indiana. I stumbled onto this location while driving around with a few friends. It's in a very discrete area that seems to have been untouched for a very long time. I ended up discovering many abandoned trains that were waiting to be explored!
Time
I found it just around noon and came back a few hours later with all my equipment, models, etc...
Lighting
To get the right kind of lighting in the photo, you had to use what you were given and not force it. All the light I was getting was merely creeping in through the windows. It wasn't easy getting the right lighting every time either because on both sides of the train, were more trains. Most of the light was just what had been reflecting off the metal sides of the trains.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D3200 and a few reflectors. I also shot some on film.
Inspiration
The dress that I had my model wear was hand made by a good friend of mine years ago and had never been worn. Luckily for me, my model fit perfectly into it. I really wanted to capture stunning images for my friend, since she allowed me to use her dress. I love urban exploring and adventuring through the "lost and forgotten world" and I thought this would be a perfect location to use that dress.
Editing
I shot it in raw and converted it into JPEG. Other than that, I don't usually like to manipulate my photos, unless I need to. I do "touch-ups" on Iphoto on some of the photos to help the overall feel that I am looking for. Overall, part of the fun in photography is trying to capture your manipulations in the original shoot.
In my camera bag
I always bring my camera, sometimes a tripod and reflectors, and every now and then my film camera and rolls of film. Besides camera stuff, I like to bring an abundance of clothing articles (you never know what may look good at last second) and usually some food. I always get hungry and tend to be out in the middle of nowhere most of the time.
Feedback
"A good photographer borrows, A great photographer steals." If someone wanted to create something similar to this photo, I would advise them to First, think about what they want to capture. Second, work with the light, not against. Third, have fun taking pictures of the unexpected. Photography isn't about finding pretty places and taking pretty pictures.
