Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken under a stairwell in the carpark of a new industrial complex, not too far from my home.
Time
It was around 10 am and the sun was getting a little too high in the sky for typical portraits, so I opted for something a little more edgy with this gobo effect.
Lighting
This was a direct sunlight shot, however there were other walls close by bouncing light around to help soften shadows.
Equipment
I was using a handheld Nikon d810 fitted with a 24-70mm f2.8 Nikon lens for this shot. I was tempted to use fill flash, but felt none was required due to the reflective walls immediately to camera right.
Inspiration
Malina is a stunning model who had just given birth to a baby girl and we both wanted to showcase the beauty and vibrance of a proud new mum.
Editing
I mostly use Photoshop for all my post work. On this occasion I used a black and white layer combined with a cuves layer to help bring out the desired level of contrast.
In my camera bag
For location shoots I always pack my wide, medium and telephoto zoom lenses, along with an on camera flash to help out when the natural light is not being cooperative.
Feedback
I always keep my eyes open for interesting lighting situations, and am often amazed at how much of an impact this can have on an image.
