Hi znikon, thank you! There were two lights, one flash light on the right in front of the model and the light of a torch coming from the pavement on the left behind her :)

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in the center of Rome, near to St. Peter.
Time
We went out to shoot sono photos in the center of Rome in the evening. It was a beautiful night after a raining afternoon.
Lighting
I put a torch behind the girl to have a beautiful backlight and another one in front of her to light her beauty.
Equipment
This photo was shooted with a Nikon D7200 and a nikon 85mm f/1.8, no tripod and 2 torches.
Inspiration
There were plenty of tourists in Via della conciliazione, but suddenly it became desert and I saw the street lights palying their games in the pavement reflections. This was exactly what I was looking for!
Editing
The shot was converted in black and white. Durind the post-processing I only gave a little more contrast and adjusted the lights and shadows to have exactly the cinematic mood I researched.
In my camera bag
I usually bring in my bag one of my cameras (Nikon D7200 or Nikon D810), the nikon 35mm, 50mm, 85mm f/1.8 lenses and one of two lights (torches or led light). I rarely use tripods.
Feedback
Be aware and pay attention to everything that surrounds you. The lights, the reflections, the persons, the objects, the buildings and their positions compared to one another are the things that determine what kind of taste will have your shoot. If you notice something that capture you eyes, probably it's something to shoot to make a good photo!
