Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in my studio in Liverpool, NY.
Time
This was taken in the late afternoon but all the light shown in the photo is from studio strobes, no natural light involved.
Lighting
This was lit with a 50" octagonal soft box situated at camera left with a 12" x 80" soft box also camera left behind the subject.
Equipment
This was taken on my Canon 6D with a Sigma 85mm 1.4. Two studio monolights were used and no tripod. The background is Savage Seamless paper (Thunder Gray if memory serves).
Inspiration
I always struggle with black and white, I don't know why ever since I was just starting out they just look flat and dull to me most of the time. A lot of clients love them though so I was trying to find a way to really capture something that was enhanced not ruined by black and white. I settled on capturing motion in black and white.
Editing
This was converted to black and white and skin retouching through frequency separation.
In my camera bag
My prime lenses, I love them for portraits, I just have never found a zoom that can match the look of a prime. I also always use lights, I have speedlites and studio lights and all manner of tricks. I love to shape light to do what I want rather than relying on what the sun is doing.
Feedback
Playing with motion and studio lights is a lot of fun. It's interesting what something in motion looks like when frozen to me.
