Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken during a photo shoot with Terez in a rented apartment (AirBnB) in Copenhagen in January. We were about to wrap up the shoot as we decided to take a few natural light photos by the window of the apartment, which expanded into quite a few.
Time
It was just before noon, so when the outside light was brightest although it was an overcast day, so a lot of soft light streaming in the window.
Lighting
As said it was natural soft light coming in thee window, not too bright but bright enough to shoot at wide open aperture and get a nice shallow depth of field.
Equipment
For this shoot just my Canon 7DmkII and a Sigma 35mm f1.4 (Art) lens.
Inspiration
The nice soft daylight coming in through the window and the relatively dark apartment for some mood shots.
Editing
Developed in RawTherapee and edited in GIMP to make it even more moody and general retouching of skin blemishes and extra contrasts to emphasize the hair and body features.
In my camera bag
Camera (7DmkII), backup camera (70D), 2x600EX-RT speedlites, 1x430EX-RT speedlite, 1xlightstands, 2xlightstands/tripods, extra batteries, Rogue flashbender portrait kit, shoot through umbrella.
Feedback
Have an appointment with a nice, good-looking model and treat her nicely and professionally and you'll very often get a very relaxed and corroborative model, that shows in the photos.
