Behind The Lens

Location
I met up with the model and a friend of hers in my studio in Rijswijk, near The Hague. It is an ex-office space (with all the charme and lack thereof...), but it was the perfect place for the shoot.
Time
We met for the shoot in the evening, after work. As it's in the studio and not based on ambient light, the time of day is not so relevant for this shoot.
Lighting
I used a light-blaster for this shoot. A light-blaster is basically a connector between a canon lens, a compact flash and (here) a metal gobo. The flash has an inbuilt receiver and was placed at an elevated position. By positioning the light-blaster away from the camera, the lines of light and shadow emphasise a 3D-structure, such as the model's beautiful body.
Equipment
Apart from the light-blaster, I used a Nikon D800 with different lenses, here a Tamron 24-70 and a Yongnuo trigger. The model was lying on a black paper backdrop.
Inspiration
I'm fascinated by the effects of light and shadow; by positioning the light-source away from the camera in combination with a metal gobo, the resulting stripes underline the shape of her body, at the same time abstracting the body to some degree.
Editing
Some minor skin retouching, otherwise some fine-tuning of contrast, exposure and clarity.
In my camera bag
My equipment differs depending on the shoot. In the studio I normally work with a Nikon D800, with a Nikon 85 mm 1,8, Tamron 24-70 mm 2.8 and a Tamron 70-200 mm.
Feedback
It helps to clearly describe the project to your model, as it is not an everyday shoot for them. The light-blaster needs to be manually focused on your model, which is not an easy task without a permanent light source (it's a compact flash after all). It's a bit of an awkward moment when you seem to be staring at her for the focusing, so better explain ahead what you are doing. Every-time the model's position or the light-blaster's position is changed, the light-blaster needs to be refocused. You'll probably find yourself firing the flash at full power, so make sure you bring enough batteries. We had a great evening in the studio with the three of us with plenty of breaks and coffee.
