Congratulations! Super capture and great expressions! And I guess the Chateaux Migraine 2018 was not the best wine :-)

Behind The Lens

Location
For a series of photos with the Ukrainian model Anna Levchenko I booked one of the rooms in Lemonade Photo Studio in Kharkiv/Ukraine. Lemonade Photo Studio offers different rooms with different interieurs for rent.
Time
It was in the early afternoon at around 14.00hrs when I took this photo.
Lighting
For the photo series I used several permanent studio lights which are part of the studio equipment and included in the rent for the studio. For this photo I used two of these permanent photo lights with softboxes, located in 45° angles to the left and the right of the model.
Equipment
I took the photo with my Canon EOS 6D and the Canon EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM. The focal length of the lens was 80mm and the shutter speed 1/160sec @ f/3.2 with ISO 800. No other equipment - except the already mentioned two softboxes - was used.
Inspiration
The photo is one from a photo story about a woman who arrives at home from a party late night, and who is frustrated about her life. At one point of the story she starts drinking wine and almost loses control. The story was developed together with my Ukrainian friend and colleague - a photographer as well - who organised the shooting for us. Originally the idea for the story comes from a movie.
Editing
Hence I always take photos in RAW format I post-process all photos, including this one. In a first step I used Adobe Lightroom CC Classic for cropping and adjusting the basic settings such as lighting, contrast etc. In a second step I used Adobe Photoshop CC for skin retouching, minor corrections in the photo, and an advanced colour management. In a third step I used two filters from Colour Efex Pro 4 (part of the NIK Collection) for more brilliance and warmth and to add a coloured vignette.
In my camera bag
I'm using a Lowepro Protactic 450AW backback for my standard photo equipment. It contains my Canon EOS 6D and a selection of lenses from the Canon L-series. A 16-35mm lens, a 24-70mm lens, a 70-200mm lens, a 100-400mm lens, and, of course, my favourite lens, a 100mm Macro. Besides that, I always carry with me my radio remote control, three spare 32 GByte memory cards (additional to the same in the camera), cleaning materials and spare batteries for the camera. A torch for night photography completes my equipment.
Feedback
After I post-processed the photo, I recognised some mistakes I made. The wine bottle is positioned to close to the edge of the photo, the label of the wine bottle should be visible on the photo, and the table Anna leans on is not really straight - it's falling a little bit to the left. My advice to myself, but also to other photographers, if you create scenarios for your photos, check for the details. Whilst the mistake with the table could be easily solved in Lightroom or Photoshop, to change the position of the bottle and the position of the label is more difficult. Be patient - create the scenario, check for the details, and then press the button.
