Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at San Diego Comic Con. I Was asked by the Cinema Makeup School to attend and photograph the work they were demoing at the convention. http://www.cinemamakeup.com/
Time
The photo was take in the afternoon though we are on the side convention center facing away from the sun.
Lighting
The lighting done here was created by a monolight with a grided beauty dish. When photographing special effects makeup or costume I find this modifiers provides the drama i'm looking for.
Equipment
Sony A99 Lens 16-35mm Profoto B1 Air Profoto Beauty Dish
Inspiration
The character is a domineering villain in the Marvel Universe. I wanted to display his power and authority through the pose and lighting.
Editing
My post processing involves enhancing what is already there. Bring out highlights where needs or deepening shadows. I also color grade to set the one of the photo.
In my camera bag
For location shooting I usually have the following. Sony A99 lens 16-35mm Lens 135mm 2 x Profoto B1 Air Beauty Dish + Grid 1' x 1.2' Softbox 2 collapsible stands that fit in my backpack. 1 Monopod.
Feedback
The pose and lighting bring the character to life. Don't be afraid to suggest poses and try things out. It often helps if you act out the poses yourself to show the subject what your trying to convey.
