Behind The Lens

Location
this is a studio work at my loft studio in Zurich Switzerland
Time
in the afternoon
Lighting
not so serious. I always yous a beautydish as mainlight from above. To modelling the body and give the picture a 3d effect I use striplights on the right and left side in front.
Equipment
I am a Canon shooter and I use the Canon EOS DX 1. In this case I used my 85 mm lens of Canon 1,2f. The flashes are Hensel. 1 Nova D 2400 Generator and 2 EH Mini I Speed. As a light-former 1 beautydish and 2 striplights
Inspiration
This series is about jewels. I did a book about jewels for a Zurich jewelery. http://www.blurb.com/b/6282554-dreams-of-jewels This picture is a part of it
Editing
I always do a post processing and I do it by my own. I use Capture One to convert to RAW files. 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
if you take photos think about contrasts. In this case there are a lot of it. The heavy boots are a contrast to the very fine jewels. the posing of the model isn't normal for a jewel presentation.. the place of the jewels on her shoulder ect.. Breaking the rules and creating contrasts is a great way to get up your experience.
