So very good

Behind The Lens

I shot this photography in a small alley at home. The walls are painted in white, so it helped a lot to rebound the light .
It was around 6 or 7 pm, in order to get a softer lighting.
When the natural daylight was fading away, I started to use my in camera flash, always pointing indirectly, to keep the softness in the ambiance.
I made this shot with my faithful camera, Nikon D5000 and a Yongnuo flash. I equipped my camera with a 50mm vintage lens, in manual mode.
I was making a photo session with my niece as model, so we were joking, that way I got some smiles and laughs, and I took advantage of it making a lot of shoots with my camera. She had recently reached 15 years old, and I wanted to make a session with a sweet and tender mood. She is a very strong girl, so very few people get to know this side of her personality, so I tried to capture it in the session.
I wanted to nuance the frame with the same mood, so I made some color editing with color selective, turning the whites in a soft pink. Also made a subtle work with some small pimples in her skin. Finally, I enhanced the colors and did some retouch to the make up.
In my camera bag
My camera, flash, and a couple of lenses (50mm and 28 mm at this moment). Sometimes I carry some items to make optic effects.
If you are trying to make fashion photography, always look for the better skin, it will save you a lot of time in post-processing. In the other hand, if you want to make portraiture, make a relation with the model, speak about everything, try to open their feelings, that is the better way to make a honest photography,
