"Just one finger? How 'bout four?"

Behind The Lens

Location
So this photo was actually taken in my living room where I have a small studio set up. I’m not a fan of shooting indoors/on a background but the winter in Canada is long!
Time
Late evening
Lighting
I used a fairly simple lighting setup; main light was an octa from above and at a 45 degree angle and a fill from behind me.
Equipment
This was shot on a canon mkiii, and the 24-70; the only lense I own and have ever needed.
Inspiration
Britney, the model, got in touch with me and asked me if I wanted to shoot her. I had recently stumbled upon a black and white photo of Naomi Campbell and was inspired by said photo. I do not know who the photographer was of the inspirational photo; I would have to go back and find it again.
Editing
There wasn’t much fancy post processing in this one, just changed it to black and white, added some contrast, a bit of dodging and burning as well as some spot healing.
In my camera bag
Canon 5dmkii, 24-70, I always shoot tethered as I feel the screens on cameras are useless. And I own 5 profoto self contained heads/battery powered b1s.
Feedback
Get a model that can pose!!! This is a simple shot and all the work was really done by the model. She knew her poses.
