Behind The Lens

Location
On the bottom bunk! ( kids room )
Time
late afternoon
Lighting
Actually yes... It was the first day that I bought my Westcott Icelight and I took a photo of myself to test it out.
Equipment
D800, SIGMA ART 35MM, ICELIGHT , SUBTLE WINDOW LIGHT AS WELL
Inspiration
Trying self portraits but mostly just testing how the light looks on a face!
Editing
photoshop! Toning, sharpening, skin smoothing, dodging , burning.
In my camera bag
2 camera bodies always, 35mm, 85mm, 70-200mm vrii 2.8 and 105 macro. couple of flash units and another backup 35mm lens. gadgets... gum..crayons.
Feedback
Yeah totally! Just go for it. I love creating random images .. unplanned.. You just have a little bit of an idea about what you want and it's all your own. Photos like this are fun too because you can do whatever you want with them
