Behind The Lens

Location
This photograph was taken during a Photographic portfolio builder workshop in Sydney, Australia
Time
If I remember correctly this was mid morning at the back of the studio in the door way.
Lighting
This was taken during a Photographic portfolio builder workshop at mid morning where the sun was hitting the back of the studio. A natural light shot which provided this amazing light.
Equipment
This was taken using my Sony A7rii with a 70-200mm f/2.8 GM lens, handheld. Settings: ISO 200, f/2.8 at 1/160s @198mm
Inspiration
This shot was just pure chance. During these workshops, sometimes we all get carried away and start to climbing over each other as we wait for our turn with the model. I had in my bag a second camera, therefore I put this also too good use. Whilst waiting around and using a long lens, I could work around anyone who was working with the model. I knew my camera was set to high speed bursts, I knew somewhere I would get an amazing image, anyway that's what I thought..... During my post workflow I came across this image and thought, wow!
Editing
I used ACR for my creative raw and did the black and white conversion in Photoshop. This was a quick edit, using Dodge and Burn to even out the skin tones. Dropping a gradient and curves to get the contrast to where I like it.
In my camera bag
Nowadays I tend to carry around the Sony A7rii and Hasselblad H6D-50c.
Feedback
Don't stop shooting, use the natural light appropriately whilst checking exposure warnings.
