Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken when one of my students I regularly give 1 on 1 classes to wanted to work with models so we set up the studio the model was actually shot on a couch the car is a 3D asset that was rendered for this shot
Time
2pm ish but in the studio this could have been shot and looked the same any time of day or night
Lighting
One large strobe high on camera left with a large soft box and another one at 90 degrees camera right on lowest power to open up the face and create textures on the mask. the car was light exactly the same way in the 3d imaging program
Equipment
this was shot on my hasselblad with HC 50-110 lens (we also took the same shot with a canon rebel) Lights were triggered with a generic flash through the slave mode
Inspiration
The model offered her time for prints for this session and one of the reference images she wanted for her portfolio was similar to this, since we didn't have a luxury car handy we decided to make one allot of what I work on with students is working with what you have (gear and styling)
Editing
Matching up the car and the model did take a good amount of delicate post processing. Such a big composite needs to have a balance in post production to sell the image. So lighting and contrast were done in camera (or in render for the car) On the photo with the model I had to clone her out of the couch scene and match her up on the hood of the car where it would make sense. I then created reflections of her at low opacity and free transformed them to match the shape of the car. these details add allot of realism and the references I had from the model helped to pull it off. Finally I dodged and burned to get a believable interaction between the model, car, and the reflections
In my camera bag
Well my studio is now my camera bag it's the main place I work, On the go I like my Canon rebel, small, light compact has a rotating screen if I wanna post a Vlog, I will usually have my Nifty Fifty (50mm) and either my sigma 18-200 or my OLLLLLDDDDDDD canon 35-350 It's a beast they don't make anything like it anymore... but it's big. I like having ND filters too, especially gradient ones have been helpful on the go when I don't have time to sit and wait for the sky to change or don't want to composite bracketed exposures Tripod or mono pod also comes in handy
Feedback
I think first of all you can't go into the project thinking you can't do it because you don't have X,Y,Z... It's too easy to blame lack of resources. Photography for so long was MAGIC the art of "How did he pull that off?" and there were tricks that each photographer would developed to get certain effects. In the age of digital cameras we tend to "spray and pray" get a bunch of shots, and at least one will be OK and I'll fix it in post. That's an ok starting point, I know I was there for a long time and built my first portfolio like that, booked my first clients too. I find that being intentional, even when experimenting is really important in growing and pulling off ideas that really could easily just become a waste of time. Be intentional about your lighting, be intentional on your settings be intentional in your model's styling and her position. Especially hands, models have a hard time knowing what to do with their hands but hands on their own can tell the story or kill it. I woudl also say be open minded to the community, I find the photography groups on certain platforms can be so closed minded and it's unfortunate. I love talking to photographers even if I don't like their work because I want to understand it. that dialogue helps me at the very least respect their work, and more often than not gets my own gears turning on how to apply lessons they have learned to my own work.
