Behind The Lens

The photo was taken in an apartment in Florence on an afternoon of June 2017
The shot was performed at 7 pm without any auricle light. The filtering light is that of a window positioned close to the model's head
I used the evening light coming from a window next to the model's head and asked the same to aspirate the cigarette so that the light of the fire would help to create the atmosphere that is seen in the picture
The photo was taken with my Nikon D5 using the Nikon 85 f1.4 lens
The beauty of the light ch on the face of the model inspired me this shot. The twilight body has created this veiled and glamorous atmosphere that I like very much
After developing the raw file by closing a little shadows on the body, I adjusted the curves and then used Color Efex to have that grain patina that I really like.
In my camera bag
Nikon D5, and Nikon D850. Nikon 14-24; 24-70; 70-200; 85mm; Fisheye e Tamron 150-600.
The advice I can give is to let you drag from the light and capture the moment that excites you to capture scenes that are not ordinary or trivial. A photo must draw the attention of those who look at it. If the photo you are doing is what everyone sees, you have not achieved the purpose.
