Behind The Lens

Location
This shot was taken in my studio which is basically an empty office space (with all the charm and lack thereof...), but it was the perfect place for the shoot.
Time
We met in the studio in the evening. As the flash overpowered the ambient light, the time of the day is not really relevant.
Lighting
I used a light-blaster as the main light source for this shoot. A light-blaster is basically a connector between a canon lens, a compact flash and (here) a metal gobo. The flash (Godox TT600) has an inbuilt receiver and was placed to the right of the camera. The model was in front of a paper studio backdrop, which was partially lit by a studio flash.
Equipment
Apart from the light-blaster (with a 50mm lens, a Godox TT600 and a metal gobo), I used a Nikon D800 with a Nikkor 85 mm and a radio-trigger. The model was in front of a paper backdrop, which was partially lit by a studio flash.
Inspiration
I'm fascinated by the effects of light and shadow. The combination of silhouette and a strip of light is intriguing.
Editing
Some minor post was applied in Adobe Camera Raw (exposure, contrast, clarity, skin, cropping).
In my camera bag
In the studio, I normally use a Nikon D800 with a Nikkor 1.8 85mm. As lights I typically use studio flashes such as Godox QT600 and Jinbei HD600v. However, as many of my shoots are on the beach or underwater, the content of my bag varies a lot. For this shot, the main light source was a Godox TT600 in the light blaster.
Feedback
The Light Blaster is a cool device. You can insert either your own framed slides or those sold online for it. I ordered a specially made metal gobo for maximum contrast. The light blaster works with canon lenses (or Nikon with an adaptor), but does not lock the lens. As you have to manually focus the lens, it may happen that the lens falls off, so be careful. The flash will typically fire at maximum power and may get hot, don't forget spare batteries. Using a faster lens on the light blaster helps. For the effect, move the light source away from the camera. It helps to clearly describe the project to your model, as it is not an everyday shoot for them. The light-blaster needs to be manually focused on your model, which is not an easy task without a permanent light source (it's a compact flash after all). It's a bit of an awkward moment when you seem to be staring at the model for the focusing, so better explain ahead what you are doing. Every time the model's position or the light-blaster's position is changed, the light-blaster needs to be refocused. Have fun!
