Behind The Lens

Location
This shot is one of many taken on a Sunday morning in (mostly french speaking folks) Quebec City, Canada. That was the first and only time I've met This beautifully talented woman and her husband because lucky me, they weren't staying here for long and I had the chance to work with her.
Time
My film maker and I arrived on location at 6:45am. I've captured this shot at 8:15am. We've shot in different places around the old city but when we came across this modern building, we just had to stop.
Lighting
Since it was early in the morning, the sun was not very high so we've been bless by any places we've visited. This very location was kinda special because the window was doing a natural reflexion of the light that gave us a smooth lighting.
Equipment
This needed to be shot on a Sigma 35mm f/1,4 A at f/2,0. I had nothing else than my old and tired 5D mark II to tame the 35mm beast. Natural light was the only thing I needed to lit this beautiful scene.
Inspiration
Ballerina can naturally pose so these kind of artist are always a dream to work with. Seeing that this woman and her husband were only passing by the city and wanting to do a dance photoshoot in the old part of my city, I thought that it would be a great idea to gave her a great souvenir about the place.
Editing
My post-processing generally consist in giving the photo a better mood and more depth, which i feel most of the cameras doesn't give you from the start. Working on shadows and highlights on portraits photography can change your life. I also try to respect the skin color and bring razor sharp detail to life. I NEVER transform a body or a face with my models, sometime I'll adjust minor flaws but I try to respect the model's body as much as possible.
In my camera bag
I used to own the perfect wedding kit, which was the Canon 24-70mm f/2,8 and the 70-200 f/2,8 IS but I got tired of the the large depth of field of the 24-70. I currently own a 17-40mm f/4 for landscape and wide-angle shot. I still own my 70-200 for this wedding feel we love and finally, I've got a Sigma 50mm f/1,4 A that is almost lock to my 5D mark II. The 35mm for this shot was borrowed from my best friend. I always bring two Canon 580 ex II flashes with a bunch of color gels in case I've got to rock a last minute lighting.
Feedback
For the dance photography lovers, You must have a ballet school in your area. Just go there with your biggest smile and ask if you can leave business cards. Since Ballet dancer or generally young, deal with parents when it comes to children or teenagers dancers, It'll save you a lot of trouble. Then, to get that kind of shot, you can make it easier for yourselves if you wake up very early because the natural morning light is always beautiful. Then, know your locations, you have to know your city enough to know where the sun will show itself in order to put it where you want in your picture. Never forget that models aren't in your head, so you need to know the pose you want and communicate it to them. Good luck!
