Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo near my house.
Time
It was a nice afternoon.
Lighting
Natural light only.
Equipment
Canon 5d mk II + Sigma 24-35 f2
Inspiration
When I thought of this image, I pictured it in my mind almost exactly as that. I wanted to continue the conceptual work on the theme of Time, plus I'd had this thing in mind, that I wanted to recreate the scene of a girl reading a book in a meadow. Well, this shot was done with a 35mm because I wanted its slight distortion to have the attention drawn on the subject, I wanted the picture to have depth. I tried shooting this scene with a 135mm but I just didn't work the way I wanted. I used multiple shots here, so as to have a nice and complete frame. I removed all distracting elements and gave the background a "foggy" look. The title refers to a series of works on the theme of Time. The model in the scene is reading a book about Seneca. Among Seneca's works is De Brevitate Vitae, which is about the passing of time and how man deals with this.
Editing
Yes, this image is a combination of multiple shots. I wanted to remove all of the possible distraction and to get a surreal, dreamy look. I think the beautiful thing about this kind of photography is the fact that it leaves so much to the viewer's imagination. What I did want to show here is the sense of the "indefinite". As powerful as it is in literature, mostly in poetry (e.g. Italian poet Leopardi in his poem "Infinito") I do believe it can be in photography as well. Time does not exist. It is measured, but it does not exist as a touchable thing. It does not exist in nature either. Nature has states and cycles. We invented Time. Therefore it is not something that can be represented easily. You can use clocks, hourglasses, references to literature and other works, but you can't see Time. In all my images on Time, one of my aims is to show this vagueness. Vagueness is present here by means of the fog in the background. The dreamy look of the image itself adds up to this, as well. And yes, a dramatic sky, asymmetrical, from clear to dark, which I choose as the way to go for most of my works that are supposed to convey this set of ideas and concepts. Seneca says that Death is behind our shoulders, as Time passes. In this image, it is as if what has gone, in life, is now vague and unimportant, and the fog is devouring it, while ceaselessly proceeding towards us, chasing our back. Seneca's work is an invitation to always look forward, to never look back, as what is gone doesn't matter anymore.
In my camera bag
I always have my Samyang 14mm, Sigma 24-35 f2 Art, Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art, Canon 135mm f2 and my Canon 5d mkII.
Feedback
The most important thing to me, the key as far as conceptual photography goes, is focussing on a concept. It may seem banale. But that is what really matters. Think of an idea, just focus on your message, what do you see? It's just about your vision.The rest will come along by itself.
