BELLA MODELLO............ECCELLENTE FOTO

Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken in my living room just in front of a big window. The model sat on a chair which I placed directly in front of the window, and I was taken the pictures from outside. The window was open of course :-)
Time
I think this really was around noon. Not the perfect time for a photoshooting, but we wanted to try some new available light shots. It was a bit cloudy, so we didn't have too hard light.
Lighting
No extras were used to do this shot, only the available light falling though that big window door.
Equipment
at that time I still had my Canon 70D. I just bought the Canopn 50mm f1.4 and I was eager to try it.I had a lot of trouble shooting with it, because 1 out of 2 pictures was totally out of focus. As things turned out, the lens had a defect. That is why I was so happy that this particular picture was in focus!
Inspiration
this was one of my first shootings with available light. Before that I only had a studio with no windows in it, and I only shot with artificial lights and flashes. But I wanted to try the available light, because I love portraits with that deep depth in them, so I bought the lense Canon 50mm f1.4 for that special look, and it made so much fun, that I do these kinds of shots always before the official shootings. It only takes 10-20minutes to get some really great portraits.
Editing
The only post-processing with this picture was that I turned it into a black and white picture. And although the background was pretty dark, I added a vignette to it. And finally I emphasized her freckles a little bit, because I just love freckles. They bring out the cuteness in every model!
In my camera bag
Right now I am using my Canon 5D mark IV with the 50mm f1.4 lense for portraits. Sometimes I use my 100mm f2.8 macro for portraits too. I am just in love with that lense, so crisp and clear and always on focus! for all other pictures in the stzdio I use a 24-70mm f2.8. That really is a perfect lense for each and every picture you take!
Feedback
Just try available light! Don't be afraid of it like I was before. And though I still haven't mastered the available light, it is still one of my favorites to work with!
