This is awesome. I love the creativity and even though I have no idea what the model looks like, her eyes are beautiful with the blond hair and green leaves..I normally don't like images that are real "soft" but this works great. Fantastic shot.

Behind The Lens

I took this photo in an orangery at Belton House, located just outside of Grantham.
It was taken mid-day, around 2pm. It didn't feel like it as the weather was awful.
The lighting wasn't great but I got lucky with a glimpse of sunlight through the clouds. It gleamed through the glass and the trees above me which created a lovely warm tone.
I used my canon 5Dmk4 and a canon 16-35 f/2.8.
My girlfriend (who is in the photo) has the most beautiful eyes and I wanted to emphasise her eyes in a bit of a different way than just a straight on portrait. We both love exploring and adventures so the photo combines both of my loves in life.
Yes I did, in Lightroom I added a little bit of contrast and brightened the highlights. I slightly increased the vibrancy and that was it really.
In my camera bag
I always have my 5Dmk4, my canon 50mm 1.4, canon 16-35mm f/2.8 and my sigma 70-200 f/2.8. I always take a tripod with me. That's the main stuff, I always have spare batteries, memory cards, maybe a flashgun and ND filters.
I think the best bit of advice I can give is to use what's around you to your advantage. If you can frame a photo using something that's a bit different or unique then try it out. If it doesn't work out how you thought it would then you can try something different. The more photos you take the better eye you will have for looking at everyday objects and thinking of a way you can use them to your benefit. I hope that helps! Happy shooting!
