Behind The Lens

I have a private outdoor location that I have been very blessed to be able to use to shoot at. The owner is a good friend and allows me to bring models to his 17 acre landscaping facility where there are all sorts of wooden structures that he has. Some are created and some he gets due to his business. this is a shot taken of Alex Timmons a wonderful model and close friend in a root structure that has been carefully set on its side. It was found there for the first shoot of the the season. Like always the facility is an ever changing mass of interesting things to shoot with. I always a finding new things to shot on/in/with there and is always inspiring. I am hoping to put together a book of the many pictres that I have been blessed to have shot there over the years.
This was taken about 5:30 pm EST before sunset were we went out into the fields of corn to shoot with the setting sun in the background.
It was a great time of day to shoot. All natural light from the heavens can't be.
This was a handheld shot taken with all Canon equipment. Camera - 5D Mark III Lens - 70 - 200 mm F2.8 (78 mm at 1/200 sec. - 100iso and setting at f/5) no reflectors - nothing else.
Its always a collaboration between me and the model of course and there are so many spots to shoot. I usually take the model on quick tour and then they get to choose the spots they inspired by to create their own sense of beauty. I take whatever a model gives me and if needed make small changes to perfect the pose. Alex is simply a stunning beauty ad always comes up with the perfect ideas that I can adjust with ease for beautiful emotive ad evocative photography. I always come away from our shoots with a feeling that we have created something special.
Processing is always done in Photoshop (this was in version CS6) with Nik Color and Silver effects applied.
In my camera bag
I am a Canon user and that is all my camera gear. With very few exceptions.
Go outside and enjoy the time that you get to use natural light. Take your time shooting as well as processing the Raw files. Its all about the quality and not about the quantity. Get to know your shot and the subject intimately (not physical intimacy ..... duh!!!) via the process and always treat with respect. The results will show in the finished product.
