Instant favourite, the perfect shot,loooove the ink

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at my former studio in Clinton MA, using the bedroom set that was there.
Time
This was taken several years ago, so I don't remember details, though I think it was midafternoon
Lighting
Front light was a PCB Einstein through a large softbox, backlight is natural window light
Equipment
I believe this was shot with my D300, though it could have been a D7100. Lit as mentioned above.
Inspiration
This was my first time working with Shelley, and it was a vintage pin up shoot. I don't remember details, but I do know that was a real smile, I had said something that made her laugh.
Editing
Lots, I couldn't tell you the details. I no longer really process photos quite this way but there's a whole lot of contrast and masking going on here. Then the B&W conversion.
In my camera bag
Nowadays I use a D850, typically with a Tamron 24/70 f2.8 or Nikon 70-200 f2.8. I have two PCB Einsteins, but more recently I've been using a Flashpoint Xplor 600 quite a bit. I also have several Yongnuo small strobes for backlighting, fill etc. Vanguard tripod with a pistol grip head.
Feedback
Honestly, I don't remember much about this, but there was nothing special about it. Lighting from camera left, backlight from a large window. What makes the photo is Shelley and that amazing smile. A great model is 80% of the photo, in my opinion, and they don't get much better than her. My largest vote getting and most awarded photo on here is also of Shelley.
