Behind The Lens

Location
I took this picture in a bush in a local park. The place was full of dog walkers and runners. I managed to find this little flowering bush and asked my model to sit down so the flowers fell onto her.
Time
About midday so the sun was blazing but I used a diffuser to soften it somewhat.
Lighting
All natural light, to re-enforce her natural beauty and that around her.
Equipment
My Nikon D7000 and a 50mm prime. No other kit bar a reflector/diffuser.
Inspiration
She is a pretty girl who was being bullied so much I wanted to show her the beauty she possesses under all the makeup and stereotyping she was being made to conform to.
Editing
Some minor retouch on her skin and tonal adds. Simple monochrome.
In my camera bag
Always a prime lens or two. Some crystals to make interesting lens flares/light leaks. A zoom lens and my Lens Baby 3G for some quirkier portrait sessions.
Feedback
Look for locations that arent merely eye level. Get low down and work with the surrounding.s
