Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in my Studio, which is located in a higher educational institution where I teach fine arts and photography.
Time
One day, free from school, I decided to make my self-portrait. Unfortunately, rarely manages to visit in his Studio one. Working with students takes up a lot of my time.
Lighting
Pulsed Studio light was used. Three sources. 1-drawing light, 2-contour light, 3-background light.
Equipment
Canon 60D, Canon EF 50 mm 1/4, Studio light and tripod.
Inspiration
One of my students engaged in parachuting. And she decided to devote her graduation project to the topic of this sport. She started working on this photo project by bringing equipment and clothes of a parachutist to my Studio. And since I was the head of this project, everything happened with my participation and leadership. One day, when the next shooting was finished and I was alone in the Studio, I decided to make my portrait as a retro Aviator. An old leather helmet and overalls, a battered topographic map and a bag-tablet all brought me to this image.I have done several portraits in this image, but I stopped there. I especially liked the look that I was sent to the side of the camera.
Editing
Post processing includes-a small retouching and translation of color images in black and white.
In my camera bag
If shooting is supposed to be in the Studio, I use lenses with normal focal length, namely 85 mm and 50 mm. in other cases, I put in my bag all the lenses that I have (wide-angle lens, long-focus lens, and normal lens). It is difficult to predict in advance which of them may be useful.
Feedback
For my already quite long creative practice, I was convinced that the main thing in creativity is LOVE. Love for life, family and friends, the love that surrounds you, love yourself. Love is a source of ideas and inspiration. Tip: love life, this feeling helps to create sincerely!
