9766 - Italian art and magazine model Hedy Nerito makes magic with a piano and a very special friend at RC Studio in Baltimore. If you're wondering about the f-0, I was shooting my 1965 Nikkor S f-1.2 manual prime adapted to my Canon 5D Mark II.

Behind The Lens

Location
I was working at the fantastic RC Studios in Baltimore which is an old shirt factory with floor to ceiling windows and ample ambient light. Assisting me were Ron Cesar and Donna Washington
Time
Early afternoon. The large windows and light white curtains gave me plenty of shadow free light.
Lighting
I used prime lenses and manual settings for parts of the shoot. Vintage prime lenses make me feel more in control of the ISO situation by controlling the aperture more tightly.
Equipment
Canon 5D Mk II, 55mm f/1.2 Nikkor F lens. Also Canon EF 28-105.
Inspiration
The model, Hedy Nerito. She was a pro at making poses happen! If you're ever in Milan, Italy, look her up.
Editing
All I did was make it grayscale.
In my camera bag
Digital: Canon 5D Mk II, Canon T3, Pentax K3. Film: Nikon F, Ricohflex 120. Lenses: Canon EF 28-105, Canon EF 70-300 IS, Canon EF-S 18-55 IS, Nikkor S 55mm f/1.2, G.Zuiko 50mm f/1.4, 8mm fisheye, Tamron 70-200 f/2.8, Pentax 28mm f/2.0
Feedback
Hire the right model and learn manual skills. Use a studio with natural light and lots of props. This is a good time to mention that I shot awesome flash photos in that old warehouse later that year and that getting to know flash properties (meaning GN's, distance calculation, remote triggers).
