I liked this the first time I saw it. The room is seems old so the model's newest is a great juxtaposition.

Behind The Lens

Location
the Picture was taken in a castle in switzerland in january. The Windows are still made of just one-layered glas. now you can imagine what the temperature was despite the constant heating... around 10 degrees in the room, outside -5 degrees.
Time
We, Vita and I, took the Picture in the around noon.
Lighting
I used just available light for this Picture. First I had nude in mind but decided to change it to this version with Vita wearing a blouse, ballet shoes - and we hurried up ;-)
Equipment
Canon EOS 5DsR, EF 24/1.4 II, Tripod, Tv 1/250, Av 2.2, ISO 800
Inspiration
I take this kind of Pictures whne I am feeling blue myself and it helps me to overcome this. what Inspiration...? Self healing... ;-)
Editing
I converted the RAW to black&white and adjusted brightness and contrast - made the vignette more visible .
In my camera bag
In my Bag there are my Canon EOS 5DsR, Canon primes 24/1.4, 35/1.4 & 85/1.2, Sigma prime 50/1.4 Art and my 2 zoom lenses 16-35/4.0 & 70-200/2.8 II from Canon. What else? a few clamps, safety pins, needles and threads to tighten dresses.
Feedback
Every shooting try to expand your portfolio with a few unusual shots. After a hour or so I try a few shots and break rules... and/or add something unusual like the umbrella. And often, when I take Pictures like These, I deal with a situation or feeling in my life.
