Behind The Lens

The photo was taken in a state park in Utah, Goblin Valley. It's a very remote park loaded with wind and water sculpted wildly shaped sandstone.
Time of day was late afternoon. There were a lot of clouds but behind the camera the sun would force its way through once in a while.
Cloudy over the top with occasional directional light coming from behind the camera.
Canon EOS 5D Mark III settings Aperture f/4.5?ISO 200?Shutter 1/250?Focal Length 100/1 (a canon 100mm f2.8 macro lens)
Mostly the model is responsible for this pose. She is a professional and is a pretty good photographer too. I moved around a bit to position the model against the background and sky. On these kind of shoots I make hundreds of photos. So selecting the "best" one is the hard part.
Lightroom, Photoshop, Nik Bw conversion, back to photoshop for defocusing the background a little, back to lightroom to add split toning.
In my camera bag
2 bodies and 16-35, 24-70, 70-200 for many walkabouts. Lately I have been going lighter... 1 body usually the 5Ds, a 20mm, a 50mm, and a 100mm macro.
Never under estimate the power of heat and rattle snakes. This place is brutal in the summer. In May it was good (high 70's). Easy to get lost here... Without my guides from UTAdventure I would have been in trouble. Water required. Once on location, nothing is better than models willing to put in their ideas and efforts. There is no such thing as taking too many shots. I bracket in 3 shot sets. That allows me to work fast without having to worry about skin, sky, rock, and changing light messing up the exposures as the clouds move and the sun pokes through.
