Yes, I do like this photo. It has a modern 'in style' look about it. The colours are just soft enough for the young lady to really stand out. Really good job! #geoff

I like this photo, but I feel like I want something more. I love the blue eye and red hair. I think I want to know more about her, which does make the photo work.

Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was part of model photoshooting at Eugenie Terrace, an upscale apartment building in Chicago.

Time

Photos were taken in the middle of the day.

Lighting

An apartment has floor to celing rounded windows with beautiful natural light.

Equipment

Nikon D7000 with 50mm f1.8 G lens. No tripod. No flash.

Inspiration

I always wanted to point out that creativity is more important that photo equipment. I have a few vintage and beautiful film cameras. Good photographer knows how to use them. Someone who has a vision can take amazing picture with point and shoot as well. Because being photographer is to awake creativity. Knowledge of camera and technical jargon is always secondary.

Editing

I took Raw images and adjust photo on Lightroom first. Minimal color adjustment was made.

In my camera bag

Sonya6000 with Sigma 19 mm f2.8mm is in my backpack everyday. For on location photography I have NikonD7000 and Sony a6000 with 8 diferrent lenses.

Feedback

The world is full of people who try to copy other peoples point of view. My advice is to follow your own vision and go for it. Don't be afraid to be unique. Choose the right model to work with.
