Superb dramatic portrait. The light fall off fits her visual personality.

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in my tiny studio space here in Melbourne.
Time
If I remember correctly, it was some time in the afternoon. The whole session was meant to be a studio headshot session anyway, so it really didn't matter what time we did it as all the lighting was under our control.
Lighting
This image was lit with one battery powered monobloc into a 120cm octabox. I have been experimenting and teaching myself quite a lot lately with one light lighting and am glad that I have been able to get a few willing sitters to help out.
Equipment
This was shot on my Nikon D750 with one Jinbei HD610 and a 120cm gridded octabox. I tend not to use a tripod as I prefer to shoot tethered when doing portraits and I like moving around, testing new angles and what not, so the tripod would have proven to be a hindrance.
Inspiration
It was mostly experimental, really. I have been trying to learn the little nuances of how light positioning changes the way the shadows fall on the face. We were going for a few dramatic looking portraits after doing Elysia's headshots, so we got rid of the reflector and started to get creative with light positioning.
Editing
Not much here, really. A simple black and white conversion and some clean up on the blemishes was all this image needed out of camera.
In my camera bag
That really depends on what I'm doing. When doing outdoor climbing photography, I usually have my camera with a super wide angle and a 24-70mm with a Jinbei Mars-3 portable strobe and all of this would fit into a backpack. When shooting studio shots, I usually take the whole kit with me as I like to have options. This would usually include my 50mm, 85mm, 105mm primes and a 70-200mm zoom, together with the two jinbei battery powered monoblocs and a laptop for tethering.
Feedback
Not sure really, as I am still learning. I tend to look at images that I like and these usually give me a clearer idea on what I want to do during a shoot. I feel there's nothing more important to your own learning as constant trial and errors and learning from these errors.
