Behind The Lens

Location
I was photographing a wedding in a village high up in the cordillera. At that moment I had done all that was required for the clients and was free to amuse myself
Time
After meal and drinks and the official part :)
Lighting
the lighting was provided by some coloured event strobe light, visible above the girls.
Equipment
a 28 f2 Nikkor that I filed off to adapt it to my D1H at the time. the camera is a D4 now.
Inspiration
As mentioned above, I was free to shoot what I wanted and loved to watch these girls and other guests in the smoke. I have a nice series of the event and enjoyed visualizing some scenes in colours, but mostly in black and white.
Editing
Obviously, I converted it to mono. If it involves people , I always do it in Exposure as it looks more natural. In this case is was a bit tricky, I had to cook up my own recipe to compensate for a horrible pink light. So I used an almost neutral conversion with more sensitivity in yellow and a lot less in magenta till the result was seamless where the spot lights converged.
In my camera bag
a d4 or d800, a manual 18 or 12 mm wide angle, one of my beloved 1970s bokeh primes (here I carried both the 28 mm and the 55 for a lowlight wedding) a 24-70 and some tele. Depending on the occasion my 180 2.8 macro or an 135 f2.
Feedback
watch and wait. try angles and perspectives and don't even dream of autofocus in such a situation. When converting to mono, zoom in closely if you are facing unusual light to avoid artefacts.
