Behind The Lens

In my studio, It was winter so plenty of heating as well
Taken in the morning around 11am
I started the shoot with 3 x strobes but kept striping it back. In the end I used 2 x constant daylight balanced lights the main light was softened with a soft box and an extra defuser hung in front to give the softest light possible, there was one light on the backdrop as well also defused with a soft box.
Camera was a Canon 1Ds Mk111 , lens was a Sigma 85mm f1.4, Constant daylight balanced lighting well defused as I find constant lights very harsh. I very rarely use a tripod as I like to move about a lot.
I was shooting for a fashion designer that day and when we were finished the model ( Jasmine Lee Price ) was sitting on the floor so I told her to stay there and changed the lighting and shot kneeling slightly above her head line.
Post processing consisted of some skin softening but very little as I was shooting wide open at F1.4 and only the eyes, lips and chin are in focus. I also changed the colour of the backdrop as it was grey and I wasn't using any jells at that stage, I tried to pick up some of the skin colours. Some very light dodging and burning which I kept to a minimum as I wanted a soft feel not to much contrast
In my camera bag
way to much equipment but usually carry 2 x bodies, 2 flash, 4 to 5 lenses, triggers and a light meter and some spare batteries, my laptop and various leads.
I never go into a shoot with hard and fast rules, not to say I don't plan because I do I plan every thing down to the last detail , but as the shoot goes on I usually come up with other ideas and go off on other tangents. I think any creative mind does this regardless of what you shoot. As far as this image goes I know I wanted a slightly high angle, I wanted a soft feel and I wanted the model to shine. I also shot wide open at f1.4, It's one of my favourite shots and I'm glad other people like it. I find that simple shots like this work just as well as a setup theme shoot.
