Behind The Lens

This photo was taken in the forrest behind our house as a part of a zombies series I was making. This was only my second try at special effects makeup and we had a great time trying it out.
We spent most of the day on makeup and was hoping for a foggy sunset but it turned out to be cloudy instead so we just skipped the plan and went ahead with the existing light, hoping for the best.
I usually prefer to work with the natural light available. I always look for ways to use the light to enhance the feel of the image but one can not control the weather and sometimes you have to settle for what is available no matter what you had planned. One thing I try to stay away from is harsh mid day sunshine light that creates high contrast/hard to edit photos. Some clouds or a place in the shade brings out the skintones in any portrait and the colours of any flower.
I had a Canon 50 D with a standard zoomlens. Used only existing light end simple editing in lightroom/photoshop.
The TV series The walking dead made everyone talk about zombies and the possibility of such an event happening in real life. This is what inspired me to take this photo.
The postprocessing is quite simple, light/kontrast adjustments in lightroom and some simple retouching to the eyes in photoshop.
In my camera bag
Usually I have my Canon 6D with the standard zoomlens or 50mm lens. But on occasions I also bring my canon 70-200 lens for sports photos or portraits. I prefer to work with natural light but can sometimes use a flash to ease up the shades in a portrait.
The only thing stopping you from going through with an idea like this is your own imagination. Sit down and think through what you want to do, what props do you need if any, what makeup/clothing, what kind of mood are you looking for, when is the light the best to express that mood. The more you think it through and plan ahead, the better starting point you will have. But as always, no matter how much you plan, you will always find new inspiration as you go along and sometimes the extra pictures you took that were a little bit different than first planned will end up being the best of the lot. Never be afraid to try something new.
