Gettinginspired by you.

Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken in my home studio. I just purchased the bright and cheery seamless backdrop and wanted to test it out!
Time
Since it was shot under studio lighting, time wasn't an issue. The team was able to work into the evening.
Lighting
I used my go-to two-light setup to get the kind of light falloff I found pleasing. It's basically a key and a fill pointed 45 degrees toward the model.
Equipment
This was shot on a Canon 5d mk iii with a 50mm lens and two strobes with octabox modifiers.
Inspiration
I wanted to shoot a fun summer editorial, but before the season! I needed the model to look dewy and give off the idea that it was absolutely sweltering, even though we were in an air conditioned area in March.
Editing
The majority of my retouching includes a tiny bit of texture alteration and patching.
In my camera bag
My typical kit includes my camera body, a 24-70mm lens, a 50mm and an 85mm. I keep it pretty simple!
Feedback
I had the fantastic luck of working with an experienced model who knew how to take a photographer on a "chase!" She led with amazing poses and I was quick on my feet to capture a ton of great images. It's was important for to be able to follow the subject's flow and press on until you've got the shot.
