Behind The Lens

Location
I took this picture in Sion, Switzerland. We were on a narrow road that leads to the Castle of Valere - not far from where the model lives.
Time
The picture was taken at 3:30 PM
Lighting
It was a cloudy and dark day. In order to maintain the maximum amount of detail I chose to underexpose my images and decided to not go above 200 ISO. To avoid the blurred, this image was shot at 1/120s using 135mm L opened to F/2.
Equipment
My Canon EOS 6D with a 135mm L f/2.
Inspiration
I enjoy working with Caprice B. as a model, I find her face inspiring. On this particular day she was angry because a girl at school had upset her and gotten the better of her emotions.
Editing
This is an extreme retouching. Explain what I did would be very long.
In my camera bag
When I'm not working I usually carry with me a Fujifilm X20 or my Minolta XD 5. When I work, I take with me a Canon 6D and two lenses, a 135 mm L and my 50 mm. If I'm planning on working analog (35mm film) I will take an EOS 30 instead of my 6D.
Feedback
In order to succeed with this type of portrait it's important to find a face that you appreciate. I have photographed this model on multiple occasions. In order to capture certain expressions and looks, familiarity with with your subject is essential. This familiarity builds a trust that puts your model at ease even if they're not having the best of days. On this particular day my model was angry and it was her that came and asked for a photo shoot. We walked up a small road and found a shady spot. But the location and the right person aren't always enough. After choosing the angle and the direction of her eyes, I asked her to look at the camera and captured this shot.
