Behind The Lens

This photo was taken in the grounds of Castle Ashby during a workshop run by Rosie Hardy. One of my first Natural light workshops working with designers and professional models.
The day started around 11am and we had a beautiful cloudy day so lots of natural filtered light.
I love working in natural light, for some reason I find it easier than studio lighting. As it was a cloudy day the lighting was already soft, this was actually under an archway but by moving the model forward so she was just under it helped to eliminate shadow cast from the building.
Simply my Canon Eos 1300d with a 50mm prime lens.
I’m often inspired by old oil paintings and portraits like Rembrandt. I love classical and ethereal paintings with long dresses with a simplistic beauty.
I often use both Photoshop and Lightroom. In this case I cleaned up the image in Photoshop (skin retouching, background clean up etc) then I export the photo into Lightroom and play with colour toning, add filters and bring out some contrast.
In my camera bag
I always have my camera and my 3 lenses, my 50mm prime lens, I still have my 18-55mm kit lens, and a zoom lens. I also carry a reflector and spare batteries.
I would say practice with the equipment you have. You can still capture great portraits and images even with a standard kit lens. You don’t need the most expensive equipment to be creative and capture something beautiful. Also play with different angles even if it’s the same position for the model so you can try out different perspectives.
