Stunning! Which camera did you use? DSLR or Analogue? Just curious.

Thank you everyone. This was shot years ago on a Canon 5D mk II.

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at my time working for Intermix Online during a casting call for an editorial shoot. Circa 2009.
Time
This was shot in studio during a work day. Intermix at the time have a in-house studio to shoot products for their ecommerce site.
Lighting
When it comes to control lighting, the trick is to understand of distance that light travels between the light source to the subject and then reflects to your camera.
Equipment
Shot this handhel with a Canon 5D Mark II with a 24-70L II lens with a Profoto 2400 Acute pack inside a 8’ octobank above my head.
Inspiration
This was a casting photo for an editorial shoot. Typically casting photos on a cattle call look like Polaroids, but I thought it’s easier for the art director to decide if they can see how the models in their “environment” (along with the front, 3/4, profile shots). I was not the photographer for that shoot, but I hate to waste any opportunity to shoot to get half ass polaroids. Maybe someday I’ll submit the good ones for a contest or two.
Editing
Shot it in raw. Keep it in my Dropbox until a rainy day. Raw processing have come a long way since I shot it. If I remember correctly this was editing on Snapseed on a iPhone 8 Plus during my commute to work.
In my camera bag
Right now, I’m going as light as I can. My everyday bag have a Fujifilm XPro with a 50mm equivalent crop lens and 35mm. Transfer the RAWs via WiFi to my iPhone and that’s my process.
Feedback
Learn and remember your camera and light settings before you shoot with anyone. Shooting people is 90% psychology and 10% photography. The models know that I don’t have to set up a pleasing light for a casting call. So in return, they put in more effort for me, because they seen I’ve put in mine for them.
