Excellent work, Nando. I recently read an article about converting color photos to black and white to determine brightness in your photos on the f/stoppers website and it was very informative. Thank you and glad to see you here.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo during a workshop studio photography. He was just visiting the studio, looking at the progress of the workshop. Although we had a couple of girls as a model, he was willing to stand model for a few moments. This resulted in this image.
Time
The time of day doesn't matter much for indoor studio photography.
Lighting
I don't know exactly what kind of studio lights were used for this setting. It has been too long ago. But we were using softboxes and octaboxes during the day.
Equipment
I used my trustworthy Caon EOS 5D mark IV with a EF35mm f/1,4L II for this image. The lights used were from Elinchrome.
Inspiration
There was no special inspiration. The moment occured and I took it.
Editing
I made the image black and white, with a nice contrast. One thing I didn't want was the extreme details in the skin. It had to be a very natural but strong looking portrait.
In my camera bag
For portraits I use the Canon 5D mark IV with an EF 35mm f/1,4L II, an EF 85mm f/1,4L, and a EF 135mm f/2L lens. Today I have also the Canon EOS R5 available with the wonderful RF 50mm f/1,2L
Feedback
When moments occur, act on it. Although the goal were the photographs of the young women who were model during this workshop, an occasion like this makes a workshop like this even more worth it.
