Behind The Lens

Location
I shot this photo in my little garage / studio where I shoot many of my portraits.
Time
Morning but didn’t matter since I was In the studio.
Lighting
The lighting was accomplished with my 1000 watt Arri Light with a chimera. I add a 4’x4’ silk in front of the light to create a beautiful soft source.
Equipment
I used my Sony A7R2 with an SLR Magic 50mm lens. No tripod. No flash units. I own Tungsten lighting units for cinematography that I utilize for my portraits as well.
Inspiration
The model has such a unique look and a long, thin body shape and thought that with a turtleneck top and hair tucked in, I could achieve quite a striking look. The rest was the model and her wonderful pose.
Editing
I worked with Photoshop on tweaking the color. Most of the time I tend to smooth skin tones and fine tune the color. Not much needed with this one.
In my camera bag
My bag contains my Sony A7R2, two lenses, mini tabletop tripod, and lotsa love.
Feedback
My advice is study your model. Their tendencies, shape of face and body, talk to them and get to know them. I always maintain that it’s more about their personality than their physical look.
