Behind The Lens

Location
I met with Aria ( Aria Rainbow, Model Mayhem # 3786685, @ariarainbow) on a beach in The Hague, The Netherlands.
Time
It was a beautiful, cloud-free summer evening, just before sunset. The clouds then decided to make an appearance out of nowhere just in the crucial moment.
Lighting
Obviously, the sun is the only light source, creating Aria's wonderful silhouette.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D800 with a 150-600 mm Sigma at 600 mm on a tripod. As she was about 200 m away from me, we used a radio for communicating.
Inspiration
I liked the idea of having the model in front of an oversized sun, hence the tele-lens.
Editing
Some minor post processing: exposure, contrast and cropping.
In my camera bag
I shoot in the studio, on the beach and underwater, what I pack therefore varies a lot. My preferred camera is a Nikon D800 with three lenses (85, 24-70, 70-200 mm), triggers, batteries, blank model releases, cables. I often work with flashes (Godox QT600 and TT600, Jinbei HD600, Yongnuo 560III). Here, I borrowed a Sigma 150-600 mm as well as my daughter's radio.
Feedback
Bribe the gods for good weather and a cloud-free sky... In the northern hemisphere, the setting sun moves surprisingly fast towards north. You'll have to re-position often and fast, be prepared for that. Your model may find herself in an awkward situation; as the camera is 200 m away, she is posing while no camera is visible for the occasional by-passer.
