Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken in the house of a colleague, who hosts boudoir workshops. It's situated in the North of Johannesburg, South Africa.

Time

This was probably taken around late morning.

Lighting

As mentioned, this shot was taken around late morning, and the sun was shining through the window lighting up the room. That's the only light I used to capture this shot.

Equipment

I used a Nikon D750 with a Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 lens. No other equipment.

Inspiration

This lady had such a beautiful, natural smile. When she laughed and smiled at a joke I made, I just had to capture her smile.

Editing

I did - probably more than was needed. But back then, my editing skills weren't what they are now.

In my camera bag

Usually a Nikon D750, a Nikkor 50mm f1.4G and a Sigma 85mm f1.4 Art.

Feedback

Try to capture the scene with as much natural light as possible. A relaxed, comfortable model will make your job so much easier.
