Beautiful body language. Very...dark and sexy kind of feel to it. A feeling where you almost do not want to mess with her. It is awesome. Tells a great story.

I have this challenge called Emotional Body Language. Not sure if I told you of it or not, but I will tell ya now. It is for people and animals so it is open to lots of things. I am looking for photos that tell a story, such as this one, with the body language, the facial expression, the emotion, etc.....

I would love it if you entered if you have not already.

Behind The Lens

In my home studio
Around 7pm.. it was an evening shoot after she got off work
2 off camera flashes, with umbrella's
Canon with a Sigma 24-70mm lens. 2 off camera flashes, and a tripod was used in this shot
Her outfit and the chair at hand. Makes her seem in control. More so in the B/W shot.. She sat with a cigarette in hand, "she does not smoke" And i saw opportunity right away. So i did no coaching in the shot. I only caught the moment as it happened
skin softening and converting to b/w was the major processing with this photo
In my camera bag
everything that will fit.. that i may be using for the type of shoot i am doing that day.. 2 or 3 lens, 2 camera's. a reflector or 2, hand full of stands. a soft box, 2 or 3 flashes, lots of batteries.. i usually have more then required. But better to have it then regret you took it
Learn to control your lighting.. Lighting is a huge part of photography, And i see a lot of new photographers not having the knowledge of using it properly, if at all. weather natural or added light. If your lighting is not right the picture looks unprofessional. Like music. everyone has their own taste on whats good or whats bad. In processing there really is not a right or wrong, it is personal preference, some with love your work. others with not. But with lighting. Its a must learn in this profession..! Personal opinion ;)
