Behind The Lens

Location
I love black and white is a special way. This is a typical example of an indoor/natural light /available light photography. I simply wanted a Black and White portrait before the shoot. Indoor shoot with window as source of light
Time
This image was taken late morning 11 am
Lighting
More importantly ensure light from source is sufficiently diffused
Equipment
EOS 5D Mark III Canon EF 85 f1.2
Inspiration
I am inspired by the purity in black and white photography (portrait). I must note that I am also inspired by the work of Tobias Glawe and since then began a personal quest to create compelling and rich tone black and white. I have said it previously on my fb profile that Planning is essential for creating a beautiful black and white portrait. Shooting for black and white requires a specific approach to how you expose your subject more so because Black and white portrait photography is not the absence of colour, it is the preservation of it thus exposing the soul of the subject. My inspiration is the purity of the image (the subject)
Editing
start my post-production from Adobe Lightroom and end up in Adobe Photoshop. Most time I also return to Lightroom to use my LR preset.
In my camera bag
I don’t have so much in my camera bag. However, I always follow a basic step process to prepare for any photo. A day before, I check I have my batteries fully charged. I seem to have spares for everything (Batteries, Memory stick, Lenses (24-70 f.28, 85mm f1.2, 100 mm f.12 and 70-200 f2.8) I have 1 Lovely Canon 5D MK III in my bag. People tell me it is not good to have just one camera, but I guess it is just enough. I usually make a decision on what lens to use before the shoot.
Feedback
Natural Light Photography is amazing and simple STEPs 1. Have your subject by a rather large window with soft light 2. Use a reflector to fill the subject from an opposite or 45 degrees to subject 3. Underexpose your shoot by 1-2 stops 4. Use your histogram to analysis your image information.
