Beautiful

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in my studio, where I have several big windows to let a lot of light in.
Time
Was shot around midday
Lighting
It is all natural light, coming in from a window, looking really nice
Equipment
I used a Sony A7Rii and a 55mm Sony lens as well. As a background, i had a gravity backdrop, but it is almost not visible
Inspiration
I have seen a freckles series by Agate Serge, and they were beautiful and decided to try and create my own.
Editing
Yes, removed a few blemishes in photoshop and used Nik Collection to convert it to black and white. Enhanced the highlights and shadows to create extra contrast.
In my camera bag
Always have my Sony A7Rii and my 85mm Zeiss Batis and besides that my 55mm Sony Spare batteries, and memory cards, and that is about what I have in my bag.
Feedback
Find a big window and position your model in front of it, and close to it, it simply cannot go wrong.
