Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken on the last day of a workshop held in Moissac-Bellevue, France in October 2017 at a restored manor house that's set up for photographers and weddings.
Time
Approximately 1-2 pm.
Lighting
all natural lighting from the side windows and a tiny bit from the candle - no flash, no reflectors, nothing else.
Equipment
Canon T5i Rebel on a tripod. We were doing "ghost" photos where we set up tripods and locked off the shots, then the model would stop at the candle flame for one photo then she'd move. While another photographer was shooting hers, I decreased my shutter speed (increased the f-stop as well) and snapped a couple of pictures while the model was moving down the staircase. This shot was taken with an 18-55 zoom Canon lens.
Inspiration
I just wanted to see what the longer exposure would result in. I love blurry, odd, types of shots and this one just worked out really well.
Editing
Seriously, no. I cropped it a bit, upped the clarity and sharpened it which is what I tend to do on all my photos. No layering in Photoshop or anything like that.
In my camera bag
The Canon camera, 4 lenses - macro, wide angle (low f-stop), 75-300 zoom and a 18-55 zoom. Cable release, lens care kit, remote release, SD cards (tons) and a note pad and pen. Tripod and a collapsible set of reflectors.
Feedback
this is a fairly simple setup - tripod and long shutter speed. You don't have to be crazy on that, either. A fast moving person and a couple of seconds are all it takes. Helps if you have a castle to shoot in, though! But I've done this with moving bicycles, fireworks and regular people. Even without a tripod, but you'll get some blur then. One thing I'd add, is using a neutral density filter in stronger light will give you the same effect. I wish I'd had one for this shoot, then I wouldn't have had to mess with the f-stop.
