Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in my studio in Krakow Poland. It is one of the photos from "Girls in Black" series.
Time
I like to work in the evenings to limit the ambient light.
Lighting
For the "Black" series I use only one flash light with the strip. I use the black background far behind the model to achieve deep dark black in the background.
Equipment
This was shot on a Canon 6D with an EF 50mm f/1.4 lens.
Inspiration
My fine art black series photographs were inspired by some great photographers like Edward Weston, Robert Mapplethorpe, Richard Avedon and many others. I would like to show pure human body with minimum lighting and without any distracting elements.
Editing
I do not like to do to much post-processing. I always try to prepare everything in advance to have the shot ready just from the camera, but contemporary workflow usually requires a final touch in photo-editing software.
In my camera bag
It depends on the circumstances. I have always my Fujifilm X100s with me. I love this camera for everything - it is small, handy and takes great photos. When I work in my studio I use Canon 5DsR and a set of primes: Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art, Canon 50mm f/1.4 and Canon 85mm f/1.2L. Outside the studio I use also Canon 24-70 f/4 L and Canon 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye. Sometimes I use also my old Nikon D300 with Nikkor AF-S 18-200mm which is very robust inexpensive all-in-one solution for very demanding task, when I can't take care of the equipment. Sometimes I use also analog cameras and I love to experiment with vintage lenses. So it is not easy to answer the question. The content of my bag changes from one shooting to another. I like to experiment with my gear. This is not something that I would recommend to someone else as a reference solution. This set has a lot of drawbacks but every piece of this equipment is best for some specific kind of photography.
Feedback
When working in studio with a model first take care of the mental contact with the model. It is the most important part of the shooting. The second is lighting - prepare everything in advance. The last thing you should take care of is the camera. I took some great photos with my old Canon 5D classic and the cheap Canon 50mm f/1.8 or with some old analog cameras.
