Behind The Lens

Location
Ain El Sukna (Red Sea), Egypt
Time
It was taken just past midnight.
Lighting
The off camera flash combined with the flame from the burning branch gave it just the right amount of ambient light. The 5 second exposure was enough to expose the stars to give a sci-fi feeling.
Equipment
Canon 5D Mark II, SLK tripod, Canon 600ex-rt flash.
Inspiration
It was honestly my friends outfit at the time. I took one look at it and the photo immediately popped in my head. I wanted to add more of an "explorer" vibe to it, and that's when we went searching around the beach for dry branches.
Editing
When attempting to highlight the stars, I bumped up both exposure and contrast; while also decreasing highlights to reduce the light pollution in the background as well as the glare from the burning branch. I slightly burned the sand surrounding the subject to in order to immediately direct the viewers attention to him and the awesome glow caused by the fire.
In my camera bag
I always carry my: Canon 5D Mark III, Giga T-Pro II, Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 EX, Canon 17-40mm F4L, Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS II, Hoya 82mm Variable ND, Cokin C-Pol filter, SLK tripod, lens cleaning kit.
Feedback
Long exposure shots that include people are the most difficult to capture because of the involuntary movements that occur during the shot. I highly recommend planning shots like these when there is the least amount of wind, as well as making it possible for the subjects to somewhat anchor themselves to the ground to avoid said movements. In situations like these, the more photos you take, the more likely you are to leave with at least one useable and awesome shot!
