Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in a wonderful loft apartment in London’s East End, which the owner hires out as a studio. This one was taken in the dark hallway, with no natural light, using some string lights as lighting.
Time
It was about midday.
Lighting
We moved the string lights around to provide different effects. I liked having some in the foreground to create some Bokeh.
Equipment
My new fabulous Canon 5D Mark IV and my equally fabulous new f1.2 85mm portrait lens.
Inspiration
I love to experiment with ambient light and am not a big fan of flash. These conditions were tricky but I do like a challenge!
Editing
I processed in PS to balance the colours in a way that pleased me. I usually under-expose as I don’t like blown highlights. This means I usually need to bring out some of the detail in the darker parts of the shot in post.
In my camera bag
My camera plus a selection of lenses to match the shoot in question. Never a flash, but sometimes a set of reflectors. I rarely use a tripod.
Feedback
Ambient lighting is tricky so manual mode is essential. Experiment with your settings until you find the one that works best. Semi auto modes will always choose something which is not quite right. Spot metering is good for a shot like this, otherwise you might find the subject turns out too bright.
