Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken at the “creative Souls” workshop put on by the amazing Canadian Photographer Dave Brosha in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Time
Late morning around 11:30am.
Lighting
Natural light from a window and a strobe to my right.
Equipment
This was shot with a Nikon D750 and Sigma Art 1.4 50mm prime lens.
Inspiration
The model in this photo is Tyler Simmonds. Award winning film maker and public speaker. In a workshop setting the fun part of the challenge is being put on the spot and having a very short period of time to create something. Tyler is a mental health advocate who has touched many lives while sharing his personal struggles. The idea behind this image is portraying that he is now focused and has it under control. “It’s going to be okay”
Editing
Lightroom briefly, photoshop and Alienskin Exposure for the finishing touches.
In my camera bag
Sigma Art prime lenses (35mm, 50mm) are among my favourite. Nikon 50mm pancake lens in the event that I want to free lens. Manufactured in 1982 it’s funny how great glass just doesn’t go outta style ;)
Feedback
Communicate with your subject and get to know them the best you can in the short period of time you have. The chatter will relax them and give you an idea of how to capture an image that tells a story about who they are as a person.
