Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Pretville in South Africa, an old movie set designed to look like its set in the 60's.
Time
This was shot at mid-day which is not advisable for portrait photography in general, however luckily I had a reflector and assistant to help fill in some of the suns hard light.
Lighting
This was lit using natural lighting as it one of the first portraits I ever shot. I was not yet proficient with studio lighting, and so this is a testament that you do not need expensive equipment to get a great shot just keep working at it!
Equipment
This was shot on an APS-c Canon 80D, with a 50mm F/1.8 and a reflector to hill in hard sunlight shadows.
Inspiration
The inspiration behind this image was taken from general aesthetics associated with a small Mediterranean cafe or pizzeria.
Editing
Yes this was edited and colour graded in lightroom and then skin was touched up in Photoshop using frequency separation.
In my camera bag
This image was one of the first portraits I ever shot, so my equipment was still very basic. This forced me to focus more thoroughly on composition and and fundamental rules.
Feedback
This is an extremely simple image to recreate, find a coloured wall choose an outfit that fits the scene for the model and then fill in the shadows with a reflective surface. Furthermore make sure you are close to the subject with the reflector as this will soften the shadows more so than a light source that is far away.
