Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was shot in Bali (Indonesia)
Time
This photo was shot early in the morning, not only because I believe morning light is the best, but also to get some intimacy and to provide more comfort to the model.
Lighting
That day, the lighting was quite smooth and I wanted to take advantage of the dark background to shoot "low key", in order to focus on the model's body shapes.
Equipment
I used a Canon 5D MkIII camera with a 70-200L mm lens. I didn't need to use a reflector, as the natural light was almost perfect for that type of photo.
Inspiration
I love minimalism. Less is more as one uses to say. Here the completely dark background (a volcanic cliff) was perfect for a low key & composition exercise.
Editing
I always edit/post-process my photos. Here I made sure that the background was fully dark, but l also tried to enhance the relief.
In my camera bag
I use to bring all my equipment, just in case... But I admit I feel better when I have my Canon 70-200L mm lens with me. I also use to have 2 cameras, in case the main one has a malfunction, which happens sometimes.
Feedback
I'd say it's paramount to survey your shooting location (if you can), and make sure your (naked) model is comfortable with the environment. The more comfortable she feels, the better your images will be.
