Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken in my Studio on one of the regular photo sessions. I very carefully practised. Pre-made a few sketches of the ideas I wanted for this shoot. The model I was photographing, I was familiar with. I have photographed it and knew its capabilities.

Time

The shooting took place in the daytime, for three hours. During this time I have implemented almost all of their prepared ideas. The General idea of this photo session - a striking lady in a black hat.

Lighting

In this case I used a single light source in the form of a monoblock with a portrait plate.

Equipment

Canon EOS 60D; Canon Lens EF 50mm 1:1,4; In this case I used a single light source in the form of a monoblock with a portrait plate.

Inspiration

In this photo I was inspired by luxurious model and her big black hat. I have thought through all the details of this composition, all the accessories and did a pencil sketch, so I model to visually understand what result you must obtain.

Editing

Almost all of my photos I process in the graphic editors. In this case the source file was cropped, took a careful retouch, then transferred to black-and-white image. And at this stage I have modified the pattern of light and shadow.

In my camera bag

Canon EOS 60D; Canon Lens EF 50mm 1:1,4; Canon Lens EF 85mm 1:1,8; Canon Lens EF 17-40mm 1:4

Feedback

If you are an aspiring photographer and I want to repeat any you pictures, try to carefully analyze the nature of the lighting in this photo. The direction of light and shadows, glare and reflections in the eyes and reflective surfaces can much to tell. If you're already an experienced photographer, then you should not repeat what others have already done. Only individual vision of shape, light, color, life makes a good photographer a real artist. And only in this case you will be interested in people.
