Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in my studio in Nicosia.
Time
It was a sunny morning at around 11 o'clock.
Lighting
I believe that the most important thing to consider as a natural light photographer is the quality of the light you will be shooting in. I wanted to promote a mysterious look. There was some beautiful light coming in through the window, so I asked my model to come close to the window in order the light to be reflected in her eyes. The background was dark. Finding soft light is what I always strive for when I want to create a flattering portrait.
Equipment
This was shot with a Nikon D 7000 with an 18-105 mm f/3.5-5.6. No other equipment was involved.
Inspiration
I was looking to give expression and clarity to my portraits. I was fascinated by her eyes.
Editing
At that version of image I made a post-processing. My personal satisfaction comes from taking the image into Photoshop and re-interpreting it in a way that makes it feel more like a painting. After I develop the raw file I changing the brightness/contrast, adding vignettes, and textures using the power of frequency separation retouching. Also one of the most effective part was the process of the eyes.
In my camera bag
The first thing I always pack is my Nikon 50 mm f/1.8 prime. The second one is the Sigma 105 mm f/2.8 prime and the Sigma 24 mm f/1.4 prime. Also the Nikon 18-105 mm f/3.5-5.6 is a good solution for making it possible to shoot most subjects with just one lens. Every lens have it purpose.
Feedback
It's good to have in mind the 6 steps. The location to take the photo, consider our lighting, to set up our scene, to pose the subject, “Break” the Shot and take the shot is the key to achieve perfect portrait expression.
