Behind The Lens

Location
I was teaching my student how to control light, give life to picture and make art of it when I made this masterpiece. It was taken in the Lithuania Vornikai park.
Time
It was hot sunny midday. For most people shooting in this time of the day is hard. The light makes bad shadows. If you know how to handle then you are amaster!
Lighting
You can add reflector to make your image pop up, but sometimes all you need is your eyes!
Equipment
Nikon d610 at that time and 50mm f1.4
Inspiration
In my space time i make paintings. It helps me to relax. My model from this photo also is an artis. She took few bottles of paint to the session. And wuala!
Editing
Post-processing is my passion. I was learing how to use photoshop since when i was 14 years old. Photoshop was tricky thing back then. Now i'm master of it. And in this photo most helpful thing was dodging and burning. Also color selection which. It makes all the difference. I spend 5 hours for post-processing, maby more.
In my camera bag
I have so much equipment that it's hard to carry everything around. I have even Helios 40-2. Most favorite optcs that i use are Nikkor 105mm f1.4, 50mm f.1.4 and 24mm f1.4.
Feedback
Don't be afrade to experiment. If model your model agrees with everything you say - squeeze everything you can from that moment. Do things that your mind says you shouldn't.
