Very good

Behind The Lens

Location
Originally this is a studio-photo, taken in front of a grey paper-backdrop.
Time
As far as I can remember we had this shooting in the early evening.
Lighting
The subject was lit with a very easy one light setup. One studio-flash with a 150cm octabox as light-shaper. Light is coming from the left side.
Equipment
Image was shot with a Canon 5DMKIII and the Canon EF 50mm 1.4, One Multiblitz X10 studio flash with a 150cm octabox, grey studio-paper-backdrop
Inspiration
I am fascinated by the idea that there could be more dimensions than ours. The image shows a young woman lost between our world and the afterlife.
Editing
As mentioned before the subject is originally standing on a grey studio backdrop. All the other stuff is inserted in photoshop afterwards, the image is a compositing.
In my camera bag
Hmm, this depends on what I am going to photograph. My bag is always as small as possible. For example, if I am planning a outdoor portrait shoot, I put my Fuji X-T2 or X-H1 in my bag and maximum three fixed lenses. For portraits, that would be the Fuji XF 35mm, 56mm and 90mm. With a full frame camera I would use a 50mm, 85mm and 135mm. For street photography my bag is even smaller, in fact really small. There I only take my Fuji X-T20 with me, the pancake 27mm lens and the 14mm super-wide angle. For this type of photography, it is most important for me to be as flexible as possible and to attract as little attention as possible. Of course, in my studio, I have all my equipment available.
Feedback
To create an similar image you need to know how to composite an image in photoshop. Shoot in front of a grey backdrop, that makes it easier to work with overlay techniques later in post production. But the most important thing right from the beginning is, that you have a concept how the image should look in the end.
