Great Story-telling ! I thought the following when I first saw this image : Her boyfriend ran an errand for her, and when he was halfway down the Stairs, she remembered something else she wanted from the shop, so she ran to the balcony, hanging over it, intent on stopping him when he comes out the Main Doors and tell him what else she wants.. GREAT ! LOVE it !

This is a really cool shot 👏

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Melbourne City, on a carpark rooftop.
Time
This is one of my favorite photos from this set. We were aiming for a certain look and mood and sunset time was a perfect choice for the colors to really help set the scene for the photo.
Lighting
I wanted the photo to look cinematic in its style and have an aesthetic mood. The lighting itself was all natural. Only ambient light from the sunset and plenty of bokeh lights from the street below in the background. I wanted the focus to fall onto the subject with everything else being a compliment.
Equipment
No fancy equipment was used for taking this shot. Camera used was a Nikon D610 along with my favorite go to lens which was the Samyang 135mm F2.
Inspiration
I wanted to capture drama in a busy environment, while keeping it subtle and focus on only one element, the subject.
Editing
Post processing was done on this photo. Mainly adjusting the shadows and lighting. And finishing it up with color grading and soft tones. The day itself was very nice so not much was needed for this photo. Fade was also added to set the mood in the overall image.
In my camera bag
I never carry a lot of equipment around. I only ever carry 2 lenses with me on a regular basis. The aforementioned Samyang 135mm F2 and my Helios 44m 58mm F2. One thing that has changed from when I took this photo, is that I have switched from Nikon to a Fujifilm XT3. I still use the same 2 lenses I've mentioned with my new camera using adaptors. I do not mind at all, since I still used them with adaptors on my Nikon anyway. These are what will always be present in my bag. The only times I would carry anything else is for something specific. Which is rare. All my shoots are kept simple with only these items I've mentioned.
Feedback
Scouting locations is very important. It is also important to have an idea or a concept in mind before shooting. On the spot shooting isn't always bad, but it is very important to also plan your shoots. I've recently learned to story board what I am after. Eventhough I cannot draw, I at least write a description of the shots I am aiming to take. And since I know the locations from scouting, I work that into my story board. This helps me achieve my goals when in the field shooting.
