Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo between two beach boxes on a beach on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia.
Time
It was in the middle of the day. A time I would not usually shoot a portrait, but I wanted to capture this moment, so we went into the shade of the beach boxes.
Lighting
Having the subject in the shade but facing out towards a large and bright light source (the sand and water from the beach) is what gives this photo it's striking look.
Equipment
I was shooting with my Canon 6D and a 50mm lens.
Inspiration
The subject. She was peaceful, and the salt water was almost crystallizing on her skin and hair. I wanted to capture that. And of course her beautiful freckles.
Editing
I made some significant changes while colour grading to warm up the image. Which was very cool. And I brought in some texture in the hair and the reflection in the subjects eyes.
In my camera bag
Canon 6D and a 50mm lens and a 35mm lens.
Feedback
If you like a moment you don't always have to wait for the right light. Look around your environment and get creative.
