Behind The Lens

Location
This series was shot in the Aerial Dance Studio in Surrey, British Columbia, where Chantelle, the model in the photo, teaches aerial silks.
Time
We shot for a few hours that afternoon. The studio doesn't have windows, so all light was from 4 strobes on very tall stands.
Lighting
My lights had either umbrellas or a strip box, and the main was a parabolic.
Equipment
This was shot with a Canon 5d3 with a 24-105 L series lens and a wireless trigger.
Inspiration
I've shot 3 times with Chantelle so far, and as long as she's feeling up for it, I'll shoot with her forever... Because, well, just look at what she can do! There are several more images from this session in my profile and prints are still available at https://monte-arnold.pixels.com/
Editing
I use lightroom and photoshop, NIK and topaz filters, as well as some actions. The biggest post work on this image was simply cleaning up the background, which is a cinder block wall.
In my camera bag
For this set, I brought a Wardrobe bag, another bag of mineral makeup and accessories, 4 strobes, wireless triggers, protein bars and extra batteries.
Feedback
Shoot for the apex of the movement & keep the lights lower power so the recharge time is shorter. If you're in an unfamiliar space, spend the money on a choreographer, makeup artist, and be sure all the equipment is solid and safe.
