This one won a competition and now hangs on the wall of fame on my local photo studio. :)

Behind The Lens

Location
A cosy little studio shot. I was just exploring some basic lighting set ups for portraits with a calvin klein theme.
Time
Any time of day works fine in the studio. But this was a snowy evening in January with every hint of ambient light gone.
Lighting
Keep it simple. Two lights, one each side of the model. One very much dimmer than the other to give that nice bold edge to one side.
Equipment
I used my good and trusty Lumix GX8 mirrorless micro four thirds camera with a 14-150 mm lens set at around 30mm. Studio flash fired by trigger. Hand held.
Inspiration
I quite like those iconic calvin klein advertisements shot in black and white. i just wanted to play around with that idea and do my own take on it to produce images that could pass for any recent decade.
Editing
I chose to shoot in monochrome because of the subject and theme. The only post processing I did was darkening the edges and corners of the background to make the subject stand out a little more.
In my camera bag
Because my little mirrorless Lumix GX8 with its 12-100mm lens is so small and neat I can fit lots of things in my bag. A drink, a sandwich, a packet of mints, another zoom lens at 40-150mm, a pair of spare batteries... Oh, and the camera of course. :)
Feedback
Play. Remember, the camera always lies, giving us licence to make the images we want and not only the images we see. Don't always have a fixed, preconceived idea of your outcomes. Be prepared to experiment and explore and discover something new and unexpected! Studio lighting can do whatever you want it to and still produce a few surprises with every little tweak.
