Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo near Barnsley, Yorkshire.
Time
It was taken around midday.
Lighting
I used 3 Nikon SB900 flash guns to create some dramatic lighting using the Creative Lighting System they incorporate and a shutterspeed of 1/250 sec.
Equipment
Camera: NIKON D3X Aperture: f/16 ISO: 100 Exposure: 1/250 Focal Length: 14-24mm lens
Inspiration
I wanted to capture Mark's strong character in the face of adversity and publicise his campaign to get more support for amputees following the sudden loss of a limb.
Editing
Apart from converting it to Black and White there is minimal post processing.
In my camera bag
I normal carry a Nikon D810, Nikon D800E, 14-24mm lens 24-70mm lens, 90 mm Macro and 70-200mm lens. and 3 SB910 flashguns.
Feedback
Set the cameras flash sync speed to support high speed sync through the menu. Here I just let the camera dictate the flash outputs through the TTL settings. Take a couple of test shots without the flashes to set the ambient exposure to around one or two stops under exposed to create a more dramatic effect. Set your flashes up and try different positions paying close attention to shadows. Experiment with setting the flashes to over expose and the camera to under expose to create new and exciting styles.
