Behind The Lens

Location
I am mostly a self taught photographer who is always looking for ways to improve his craft. I also run my own photography studio called Stunning Photography (www.stunningphotography.com.au) in Melbourne offering everything from Portraits, Weddings, Cake smash. The photo was taken at a Photography workshop hosted by Art X studios in Melbourne. The lovely model featured here is Emily Bowley who is a absolute delight to work with and has a wonderful presence about her.
Time
This is approximately taken around 1pm in a studio with two large windows offering direct and ambient lighting.
Lighting
The model has her back slightly to the windows about 90 degrees to giver her some defined shadows and highlights whilst still transitioning smoothly across her torso.
Equipment
This photos was taken with a Canon 5D MKiii with the older Canon 24 - 105 F4 L lens at around 73mm focal length. This is using all natural lighting with no reflectors or other aids such as tripod. The image is shot at around 1/125 @F4 ISO 200 some dodging and burning has been applied.
Inspiration
Keeping in mind the workshop instructors direction with insuring there is catch light in the eyes and drama in the photo.
Editing
Yes in light room to clone out imperfections and soften the busy background and sharpening the models eyes. I also applied some dodging and burning while adjusting the blacks and whites, contrast for a overall balanced look.
In my camera bag
Canon 5Dmkiii + Canon 50mm F1,4 + Tamron 70 - 200 VC F2.8 + Tamron 24-70 VC F2.8. I have since retired my Canon 24-105 F4.
Feedback
Try positioning the model standing and siting and various postures to invoke a certain feel and look. Always take in consideration the catch light and shadows on the models face. Take ample shots and be sure to explore youre lens Depth of Field and Focal range.
