Behind The Lens

The photo was taken at the Island at Caribe, Dasmariñas, Cavite, Philippines. I am a self-taught portrait photographer.
There's a lot of published photos in this set, but this one should be one of the most challenging. It was my first time testing out my Sigma 85mm 1.4 Art, so I was not really used to shooting at 85mm, not to mention that this was a motion portrait. It was taken on June 23, 2019 at 5:28 PM.
The lighting here was pretty simple. I used a Godox TT685N with a 41" Selens Parabolic Umbrella at 1/1 power. It was quite windy at the time and I was using an umbrella so I had to ask the wardrobe designer, Al Bernaldez, to hold the 9ft light stand for me. In order to successfully fill some light to her entire body, specifically her face, I placed the light as near as I could to the point that you could already see the part of the umbrella in the shot and advised Fionna, the model, to jump to the specific point where the light is supposed to hit. It probably took around 5-10 tests before we decided to do the jump.
This was shot on a Nikon D750, with a Sigma 85mm 1.4 Art. The lightning equipments I used are, a Godox TT685N with a 41" Selens Parabolic Umbrella as modifier.
I always like exploring things I'm not used to, and portraits with movement or action is one of them. The challenge here was to nail the focus using the Sigma 85mm 1.4 Art for the first time. The model was really active and motivated with my ideas. It was really fun and worth the effort.
Since this was with an umbrella with a flash, I just used it to fill some light to the model. The sooc image was about a stop underexposed to avoid clipping the highlights on the sky. By increasing the exposure a bit and making the colors pop by vibrance/saturation, I achieved the above photo.
In my camera bag
I don't have much equipment, so I just adjust or adapt using the ones I have. I always bring my entire equipment most of the time, it includes a Nikon D750, Nikon 50mm 1.8G and my newly bought Sigma 85mm 1.4 Art. Here in the Philippines, there are a lot of places where you need a permit or the use of external lighting equipment is prohibited, when that's the case, I just normally bring my camera and one lens. When off-camera flash is allowed, I always bring all of them. My lighting setup is composed of a Godox TT686N flash, 41" Selens Parabolic Umbrella, Godox S-Type Bowens Mount, unbranded 9ft light stand. I don't like bringing a lot of heavy equipment during a photoshoot, but it's something that I already got used to.
The most important thing to take into account when shooting moving subjects is to learn your camera/gear. Knowing the right settings for the right shot is strictly important especially when you're using a low-end gear. Your only enemy when shooting moving subjects would be unsharp images and handshake blur, so try to master proper timing and shooting techniques to achieve tack sharp images. Things like lighting equipment always comes second to natural light and mastery of your gear.
