Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in my living room after moving the sofa and coffee table to give us enough room to shoot .
Time
We shot this in the afternoon but being inside and a relatively cloudy day I didn't cover the windows the ambient light wasn't a factor in this shoot .
Lighting
For lighting I used a Westcott 43" octa with a grid as my key and a strip as a back light /rim both with Elinchrome brx 500 lights
Equipment
I used a Canon 5dmark3 with a Sigma 24-35 art lens (great lens ,one of my favorites) for flash i used Elinchrome brx 500, in Westcott softboxes.
Inspiration
I wanted do do a blank and gold inspired shoot with Geraldine for a long time. I feel the color gold is so beautiful on black skin for this particular image I converted to black & white because the tones lent themselves perfectly for it but I usually don't do much monochrome.
Editing
For post I like to keep it to a minimum ,I added texture to the background a little skin retouching ( she has great skin it helps ) ,some dodge & burn and a black & white conversion all in lightroom and photoshop
In my camera bag
In my bag i have a Canon 5dmiii ,a few essential lenses the Canon 70-200 f2.8 ,Sigma 24-35 f2 art and a new addition the Sigma 14-24 f2.8 . as you can see I love my wide angles ! I also carry around a few speedlights and a tripod and very important the lightmetre.
Feedback
Don't be afraid to experiment with lights ,take your time placing them and moving them sometimes a few inches higher or more to the side will make all the difference . Use your lights close to your subject . And the most important have fun it always shows in the end results !!!
