Beautiful physiques. I really appreciate that you take the time to credit them - as they must, as well.
Achieving this kind of build takes an incredible amount of discipline.

Behind The Lens

Location
this is a studio work taken at my own studio in Zürich Switzerland.
Time
we start shooting on Saturday the 6th Feb. 2016 and this shot was done around 17 pm
Lighting
This one is out of my "doorlight series". Doorlight means, the light is coming thru a door and give this small frame of light on the object. I use 2 wooden plates and place it over an edge. Than I build up the light within and look where the light beam is fallen. This kind of lightning is a very hard light and the results are better in black and white than color.. Because hard light on humans are very dramatic. But take a look at the muscles, they are popping out.. I love this effect. Placing the light behind the wooden plates take care that the light is not directly coming thru.. You have to use the plate as a reflector.
Equipment
I am a Canon shooter and I use the Canon EOS DX 1. In this case I used my alround zoom lens of Canon the 28 - 300mm. The flashes are Hensel. 1 Nova D 2400 Generator and 2 EH Mini I Speed
Inspiration
I always looking for new ways to use light.. And this inspired me
Editing
I always do a post processing and I do it by my own. I use the Adobe Bridge and the RAW Converter to set up the right contrasts and colors. In Adobe CC photoshop I do at first the skin retouching. I use the frequenzy seperation to make the skin clean, than dodge and burn to set the highlights and shadows. After that I use the detail extractor from the Google Efex Pro 4 filters to give some parts of the picture a deep sharp. A little bit skin toning and that's it. The convert into the bw I use the google silver efex pro filter
In my camera bag
I use a photocase Peli 1510. 2 cams Canon EOS D5 Mark II and a Canon EOS DX 1. My Canon lenses are 28 -300 mm zoom, 24 - 70 mm zoom, 85 mm lens, 50 mm and a Sigma wide lens 12-24mm. Also a Speedlite 580EXII flash. And for some reasons I have a lightmeter from Gossen Digipro F and a Colorchecker x-rite.
Feedback
Using a light setup like this gives you the possibility to create a scene. And this is important, creating a scene means you have to tell something to the people.. Check in front what kind of story you like to tell. And this is not a looking thru story, because you are in the same room like the photo objects. It is a very intim situation if you photograph people, so tell a story that fits this situation.. It takes a little time to find the right angle and how the light is falling.. I test it out in front before I start a shooting..
