Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken on my second ever visit to a photo studio. I was just exploring and learning basic lighting set ups for portraits.
Time
Any time of day works fine in the studio. But this was a dark evening in December and every bit of natural light had gone.
Lighting
Two lights, one each side of the model. One very, very dim. The other giving a soft light with every flash.
Equipment
I used my good and trusty Lumix GX8 mirrorless micro four thirds camera with a 14-150 mm lens set at around 40mm. Studio flash fired by trigger. Hand held.
Inspiration
After photographing things for over forty years I had a massive portfolio of landscapes, still lifes and nature photos. It was time to learn something new. And this is the result. A new interest in people, portraits and using models.
Editing
I played around with lots of edits for this series of photos. Some I made into a bolder design with a sixties feel. But this one I preferred with a bit of bleaching of the colour to give it a slightly spooky aura. Bringing the colour back into the eyes just gave it the boost I wanted.
In my camera bag
My bag.... Because my little mirrorless is so small and neat I can fit lots of things in my bag. A drink, a sandwich, a packet of mints, another zoom lens, a pair of spare batteries... Oh, and the camera of course. :)
Feedback
Play. Remember, the camera always lies, giving us licence to make the images we want and not only the images we see. Don't always have a fixed, preconceived idea of your outcomes. Be prepared to experiment and explore and discover something new and unexpected!
