Behind The Lens


This photo was taken in the backyard of a house in Florida. This house was an Air B&B. Sometimes you can take a photo in a room with controlled lighting or natural lighting and it can be great, but sometimes location does matter.


We began taking photos around the time of 4 in the afternoon and this was taken a bit closer to 5-6 in the evening. I wanted to conceal her a bit to create suspense.


Lighting was natural in this shot. My settings were at 1/30 shutter and f/18.


I had my Canon 70D at the time with my 16-35mm 2.8


I like awkward angles, diff angles. I love nature captured in my photos more than studio shots. Incorporating objects in the photos is intriguing to me more than an eyesore.


The only post processing involved was altering the photo to black and white and adjusting some lighting settings.

In my camera bag

I carry a ton for options. I never know when I might want to use a certain lens. I carry a 100-400, 16-35mm wide angle, 24-105mm wide angle, 100mm macro, 85mm 1.8, and a sigma 15mm fisheye


Lenses make the photos besides the many other factors. I love capturing more than possible in photos and I usually stick to my wide angle lenses. Unless you’re shooting close ups portraits try as many angles as possible for fun and see what you get. Play with the lighting you have and/or add/subtract lighting as much as you need. Nature is the best background for many photos.
