Amazing shot, neck strength and balance. A lot nicer than a turtle too! Well done!

This is a corker of this style and genre of these types of images. Another one of those Viktoria, Kate or Fry session puzzlers. I hope you would add the model's name in your descriptions in future.

A beautiful, skillfully captured image/scene ... Love the reflections ... Congrats on your awards.

Behind The Lens

This picture was taken at a beautiful hidden spot along the rhine river in the canton of Schaffhausen | Switzerland.
It was around p.m. in late summer time so we had some nice natural light and it gave a beautiful reflection
I knew this spot and knew around what time of the day i have the light i wanted for this shot. I think this is the most important point in doiing natural light pictures. You need to learn to see which light you can use for different moods and start playing arround with it.
I worked with a canon mark iii and used the canon 50mm 1.4 at 1/160 f2.5. And an assistant gave her a little extra light with an reflector (white side) i wanted to create a nice reflection and let her transfer a feeling of silent and peace within nature.
I know this spot for a long time, and since i started to photograph i knew i like to take this picture. So it was the right time for it
I did some post process with photoshop. Working out colours, contrast and lightning details with gradiatinon curves and dodge and burn without going to much into detail.
In my camera bag
What you always always find in my bag is the canon 50mm 1.4. I love how it plays with light and its bokeh is perfect for portraits. The other stuff in my bag depends on what i'm up to. For portraits theres for sure the 100mm macro 2.8 and the 70-200 mm 2.8. The 100mm because its so sharp, you'll love it. And the 70-200mm to play arround and its bokeh and sharpness are just fun. If I go out for landscape or nature pictures i change the 70-200mm with the 24mm sigma art. I'm not a big landscape photographer but the sigma is great and its not to expensive for having it as additional lense
I always know the spots i want to shoot for special projects. If you plan bigger things i think thats a must do. For other shoots i just look arround and seatch for spots with interesting details, moods or lights. I always take care that my model feel comfortable which is important for pictures who should look natural
