a 5D III and a beautiful woman, what else?

Behind The Lens

Location
Indoor natural light photography was taken in Hannover, Germany 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 at about 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 incredibly inspired by the simplicity and command of a beautifully presented black and white portrait. 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
I would usually start my post-production from Adobe Lightroom and end up in Adobe Photoshop. Most time I also return to Lightroom to use my LR BW preset.
In my camera bag
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.
Feedback
Be creative and keeping working.
