Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in a hidden gorge near Watkins Glen, NY. The topography in that area is very rocky and wet so lots of moss and waterfalls.
Time
This was taken in mid afternoon, typically not a good time for outdoor portraits. The gorge is very narrow and sheltered to it stays shady almost all day.
Lighting
This was shot with a mixture of ambient and speedlites. Most notable is the main light which is a speedlite in a 46" octagonal softbox.
Equipment
This was shot on my Canon 6D with a Sigma 85mm 1.4. No tripod for this, the soft box was mounted on a Impact boom stand and the flash inside was a Yongnuo 585.
Inspiration
I love this area and all it's hidden beauty and using these locations for glamour photography is a great combination. I wanted to evoke a sense of mystery about this un developed place.
Editing
I used a tone curve with the bottom end flattened to dull the blacks and then split toned the image. The highlights are a pale yellow and the shadows are a dark blue. I overlaid a deep blue vignette to deepen the shadows at the outer edges. Then just a lot of skin retouching, dodging and burning.
In my camera bag
I've really taken to mixing lights with ambient light outdoors so my bag has gotten a lot bigger. I always carry a set of three speedlites, a few stands, and a selection of collapsible softboxes and umbrellas.
Feedback
Don't rule out a location because of its lighting or difficulty of access. Sometimes the hardest locations make for the shots you are most proud of.
