Behind The Lens

Location
Phoenix, Arizona, USA
Time
Early evening, roughly 5:30pm.
Lighting
Honestly, nothing crazy. Just good solid natural sunlight. I wanted a harsh look so it was just me and the sun, no reflectors or anything.
Equipment
Well, since this is a self portrait I utilized a tripod and set the camera to a timer. Then I’d press the shutter and run to my pre-focused spot in the frame.
Inspiration
Haha, pretty much every good movie about cops. The epic lighting, sunglasses, intense expressions, etc.
Editing
Yep! Mostly a bunch of glorified dodging and burning. Some localized vignerons to accentuate the framing, and then some slight desaturation.
In my camera bag
I usually pack light. A telephoto Zion lens, an 85mm, and a wide angle for landscapes.
Feedback
Just experiment. Get out early, start shooting in the crappy light to work out the kinks so you’re ready for the good light when it hits. Don’t worry too much about your location, just start shooting!
