Behind The Lens

We took this photo together with my wife in our home studio in Moscow
We took photographs at evening to get rid of glare from the window. This photo was taken at February 01, 2015 at 19:59
I covered my wife's back with sunburn oil and sprinkled it with warm water. To get the backlight of the drops, I positioned the stripbox with studio flash so that it shines vertically down at a distance of half a meter from the bed on which the wife was posing.
This was shot on Nikon D800E with lens SIGMA Art 35mm F1.4 DG HSM, no tripod, studio flash. Flash power was selected experimentally? RAW, ISO100, 1/160 sec, f/8.0
I've been a Michael Zelbel fan, which publishes the magazine GoodLight for many years and this photo, like a dozen others, are included in my series of nude photographs
Starting in 2011, I shoot only in RAW and process all my photos are in the program Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Specifically for this photo, minimal processing was applied, including a slight correction of Clarity, Exposure and Contrast. After that, I did some cropping to a size of 6974 x 4654 pixels and added a slight vignetting.
In my camera bag
The center piece of my backpack is my Sigma 50-500mm f / 4.5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM SLD Ultra Telephoto Zoom Lens for Nikon Digital DSLR Camera. This is heaviest and my most favorite lens. Jokingly, I call it the Psycho Traveler Lens. The second lens that I often add to my backpack is the Tamron SP 24-70mm F2.8 Di VC USD. My old and reliable friend. Sharp to trembling eyes! If I go for commercial architecture photography, the listed two objects remain at home and their place in the backpack is taken by two specialized lenses: Tokina opera 16-28mm f/2.8 FF Lens and Samyang T-S 24mm F3.5 ED AS UMC is a wide-angle, full-frame lens fitted with the perspective control and tilt-shift functions. Its unique optical and mechanical construction makes it an ideal tool for architecture and landscape photography. The product is extremely useful to correct convergence of lines and perspective control. Of course, I don't forget to take extra batteries for the camera with me, as well as spare memory cards and a trigger to control the camera remotely.
As a person involved in photography since childhood (in 1976 I worked as a school photographer at the school where I studied), I want to recommend that you not be afraid of what you are planning to do, not listen to advisers who tell you: you will not succeed, because ... Don't listen to them! Read specialized literature, watch instructional videos on YouTube, and practice constantly. To try to take such a photo, you do not need to rent a studio, just wait for the evening and turn one of the rooms of your apartment into an impromptu studio. Invite your girlfriend or wife as a model. Explain to her that you will be shooting in complete darkness and nothing will be visible! :) If you will use a table lamp as a light source, then make a narrow and long lampshade for it, for example, from a cardboard box from a cocacola and set the lamp so that the light from it falls vertically downwards and does not illuminate the bed in front of you at all. Be sure to mount the camera on a tripod, ask your model to lie on her stomach on the bed, smear any body cream on her back and sprinkle with water. Then set your camera to a slow shutter speed (depends on the light falling on the model and is selected experimentally), ask the model not to move and press the shutter button. Whatever result you get, this will be your first step in the right direction! Move the lamp up and down, move it closer to the model or further, change the exposure time ... Experiment and you will succeed! I guarantee you that. Because a creative person will always find the right path to the goal!
