Very good

Behind The Lens

Location
At one of the Arts University Bournemouth studios
Time
Probably around mid afternoon, but I did not use any natural light
Lighting
It was a fairly simple beauty lighting set up- one large soft box in front of the model, pointing downwards. I also had a light on the backdrop to make it appear more white.
Equipment
I used a Canon 5D mark III, with a sigma zoom lens kept at a focal length of 50mm. The lighting I used was Profoto.
Inspiration
This image was inspired by coral bleaching. Due to factors such as pollution and global warming, algae on coral reefs leave, causing the coral to starve and turn white.
Editing
Just a bit of retouching on Photoshop. As the image is based on dying coral, I lowered the virbrancy slightly and got rid of pink tones in the skin.
In my camera bag
Canon 70D (I hope to one day be able to afford a Canon 5D) Sigma 17mm-50mm f2.8 Tamron 70mm-200mm
Feedback
Styling is just as important as the photography. Focus on lighting first. Once you have a lighting set up that your happy with (it doesn’t have to have 6 or 7 lights- sometimes the simpler the better!) really think about what will be in the image- if it’s of a person don’t just think about the clothes- think about accessories, make up, poses, declarations/furniture. I like to bring a lot of props to a shoot, and play around with them.
