Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in my studio in Liverpool, NY.
Time
This was taken int he middle of the day but all the lighting is artificial.
Lighting
I had seen a photo somewhere where someone had lit a photo of a product using an edison bulb like this and decided I could do something with a portrait. Initially I planned on using it as the only source of light. After a few test shots I decided to light the model with a small beauty dish and fill with light from the edison bulb. Played with a few different light locations and ended up with a butterfly filled from below by the bulb.
Equipment
This particular photo was taken on my Canon 6D with a sigma 85mm 1.4. The light came from a beauty dish with a speedlite in it, and the bulb is from Lower on a lamp repair cord I got from Amazon.
Inspiration
I guess a rolling theme in my work is lights and shining lights in dark places. I wanted to continue that theme but do something I had not seen done before. My twisted mind ended up here.
Editing
Just skin retouch via frequency separation.
In my camera bag
Lights! Speedlites, studio lights, I don't care I love artificial lighting. Even outdoors I mix lights into the daylight to create the effects I want.
Feedback
Use lights to shape the way you want your photos to look. Every time I hear someone say they are a "natural light" photographer I cringe at the thought of not being able to control the shape of light on my subject. Everyone has their own style and I respect that but when I started incorporating lighting into my photographs it was a game changer for me. I started getting recognized, and most importantly I started getting hired.
