Behind The Lens

Location
This photo has been taken on four different locations - all merged into one. This image was a challenge for me to see how far I could raise the bar. The goal was to recreate the atmosphere of Jeremy Geddes supurb work. Firs image was the model, shot in my studio. Second one was at an empty villa in which we placed the bed in the livingroom in front of the window. Third location was a digital one, made by a good friend the 3D artist Tristan Bethe. All glass and wood are digitally created by him. Location four was another digital one - my own computer at the office. It took me roughly about a week to create this image from start to finish.
Time
Hard to answer with a manipulation. The favourite parts were the ones in the studio and the villa. Both were in broad day light, but the studio has no windows, so that could have been any given time. The digital hours were mainly evening ones - after work.
Lighting
I knew from the start that she had to be 'falling' through the window, so the light in the studio had to be casted from one side. Also it needed to be dramatic - so a dark side and flares were added. Main characters were the model and the window - so they are properly lighted - the rest accordingly.
Equipment
This was shot with a Nikon D300 - obviously on a tripod - with a Sigma 17/70 lens on 17mm, f4.5. The flash used is a Bowens Gemini 400W set, in combination with PocketWizzard triggers. Digital work has been done with 3D Studio Max - and Photoshop CS + a touch of Adobe Lightroom.
Inspiration
By looking at other photographers or painters - and trying to (re)create their work you can learn a lot. This image was a personal image to see how far I could raise my personal bar. I really like the work of Jeremy Geddes - and was puzzled about how I could pull this one off - all in all a big enough challenge to take it on. If I didn't have the help of the 3D artist - I would have had to do some high-speed shots of windows being smashed - which would have been nice also.
Editing
Nah, hardly anything ;)
In my camera bag
Since the Nikon D300 with it's battery-grip is a heavy piece of equipment already by it's own - I usually take good care to pack just the things that I need. When out in the open thats the Nikon and - back in the days - the Sigma 17/70 plus the Sigma 70/300 Apo. Nowadays I tend to stick more to primes - a Nikkor 80mm and the Nikkor 50mm are more or less basics in my bag. On the road there's always a SB900 Flash unit on stand by as well, just in case. For studio work it defenitely depends on the job - but the Bowens Gemini kit, the PocketWizzards and a Manfrotto tripod are basics for there.
Feedback
Pick your favourite artist or a work that you admire and have a go at it. Give it your best shot. Even if you 'fail' it is very rewarding. Cheers!
