Scarey but Awsome!!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in a photo studio in the SF Bay Area.
Time
Picture was taken indoors with strobe lights, mid-day.
Lighting
Lighting was average: strobe (2) lights in umbrellas, exposure was 1/160th second. The magic came from the pose and the post processing. My only regret was that I didn't bring some fake vampire teeth.
Equipment
Hand held Sony mirrorless camera, 24-70mm lens at 70mm, f11.
Inspiration
Everyone at the event was taking nice sweet pictures. I thought I'd try for something a little darker...
Editing
Nik Silver Effect Pro with the Full Dynamic Range process and the blue filter. Nik SEP is a wonderful tool to use in making Black and White pictures and it is now free! (It use to cost hundreds of dollars before Google bought Nik)
In my camera bag
For a studio shoot I carry a camera, extra memory cards and batteries, two Pocket Wizards (in case one breaks). I also often take a tripod and props but they were not needed for this picture.
Feedback
There is an old saying in photography, "If your picture is no good, get closer!". On the other hand if you get too close to your model, your model may become uncomfortable and that generally hurts the picture. You &bt;&bt;have<< to develop trust and communication with you model for good photos. This takes time and effort. Some important things to do include: -- Talk to your model about what you are trying to do. -- Show your model what your camera captured every few photos. -- If you promise your model pictures, deliver them promptly. -- And of course, be polite. I also find I work best with models I have worked with before. I also show my models some of my recent good pictures so they have an idea of what I can do, that I'm not just a guy with a camera.
