Nice portrait

Same photographer See all

Behind The Lens

Location
in Calabria, southern Italy, in a little village called Polia
Time
must have been around 17:00 on August
Lighting
the lighting was not anything special, the subject was in shadow and the light behind the subject was a bit more enlightened
Equipment
a Nikon D3 with a 24-70mm
Inspiration
the eyes of this old lady! could be seen from far away that were beautiful and lively then once you close that I could not take it so close to
Editing
I did a conversion
In my camera bag
port behind a D3 and a D700 with a 24-70 and a 70-200, then a 35 and a 10 and some flash
Feedback
the only advice I can give is to stay inside the scene, the only way you will have an excellent result and transmits
