Strutting. A great picture! Just a thought.... a diamond right wrist bracelet to contrast catch the light and add a level?

Behind The Lens

Location

This was shot in an alley, in the downtown core of Calgary.

Time

It was shot at night, maybe 8pm, I wanted harsh shadows and the colour of the smoke to really pop.

Lighting

Strobe lighting, placed to the side of the model.

Equipment

I used a 600 watt strobe, with a 36 inch octabox, nikon D810 and 24-70 2.8 Nikkor lens.

Inspiration

I wanted something risky with a little mystery to it.

Editing

Yes I did, Lightroom for post. Didn't do a lot other than sharpening and played with thr contrast some.

In my camera bag

Nikon D810, D7100, 24-70 2.8 Nikkor, 70-200 2.8 Nikkor, and a sigma 50mm 1.4 art would be in my bag for street shooting.

Feedback

Persistence, it's tricky with a moving subject. Plan out the shot before activating the smoke.
