I just wanted to leave a quick note to say thank you for participating in my "Portraits on Location" challenge. While I ultimately chose another photo as the winner, this one was one of my 100 favorites in a field that was just shy of 2000 entries.

Behind The Lens

Location

This photograph was taken at Sheffield Botanical Gardens.

Time

It was just after midday.

Lighting

The botanical gardens had many windows letting in huge amounts of light. It was quite an overcast day, resulting in the most perfect lighting conditions.

Equipment

Canon 5D MK II and 50mm f/1.4.

Inspiration

A hair and makeup artist was looking to expand her portfolio and called on me to photograph her work. She was quite happy to leave the concept in my hands. I love nature and greenery so decided to take some portraits incorporating these elements.

Editing

Due to this being a beauty shoot, retouching was expected. I retouched the models skin and clothing to a high standard using frequency separation in Photoshop. I then applied colour corrections using Lightroom.

In my camera bag

I never leave the house without my Fuji XPro-1. I feel unbalanced if I don't feel the weight of it strapped around me and knocking against my hip bones. I usually have the 18mm f/2 and 35mm f/1.4 on my person. It's a really lightweight and versatile kit for day to day meandering. If I am going out specifically to shoot, as well as the above I will also always pack my Fuji X-T2 and Canon 5D MK II. I love the different characters of both Fuji's and my Canon. I also pack my nifty 50mm f/1.4, vintage 58mm f/1.9 and depending on the project, I may also take along my 45mm TS-E f/2.8.

Feedback

I think having lots of soft window light is what made this photograph a dream to edit. Most of the look was achieved during post-processing. To capture something similar, simply head to somewhere with lots of greenery on an overcast day!
