Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Vinové wine bar near my home at Jihlava - Czech Republic. It was the first sunny day of this spring, so we decide to use only natural day light.
Time
It was noon - a lunch time, so the wine bar was empty and we could experiment with outfits. Use only jumper and socks was really good idea in this antiquated surroundings.
Lighting
I wanted to use the atmosphere of day light coming in through the front door, so I decided not to use any other light sources. I hoped that there will be some soft noise in shadows which fits into this environment.
Equipment
I used Canon 5D Mark II and Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 lens, which I usually use for portraits. But in this room I had enough space for photographing the whole figure.
Inspiration
I just wanted to shoot some sensual glamour with nice expression in old looking environment. But I felt that using only the underwear does not fit into such an environment. I wanted something sexy but chaste and the jumper was just a right choice.
Editing
I used Lightroom and Photoshop. I did the retouching using frequency separation technique, toning only with color balance and selective color, dodge and burn technique and local sharpening. It took me about 30 minutes.
In my camera bag
Usually I have in my bag my Canon 5D Mark II and 3 lenses - Canon 50mm f/1.8, Canon 85mm f/1.8 and Sigma 30mm f/1.4 ART (that does not belong on full frame body, but I really like it's vignette and drawing). And some other accessories like flash light Canon 430EX, flash ring, filters and bag of gummy bears.
Feedback
It's not really big deal to capture similar photo. Just find an interesting place and pick a beautiful model. Then you just need to feel it - right moment, right angle, right expression.
