Behind The Lens

Location
This foto was created in my old studio in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
Time
Taken midday using daylight from an overhead skylight.
Lighting
Natural daylight from an overhead skylight mid to late morning. I truly enjoy using available light... especially daylight... with reflectors when needed.
Equipment
Nikon FM 35mm camera with Nikkor 50mm lens. Shot on Ilford Delta 400ASA B&W film.
Inspiration
My inspiration for this was the natural beauty of the model without hair... Not having hair seems to accentuate her beauty... I did ask her to grow a three to four day stubble to give hairline definition.
Editing
The original B&W negative was scanned to digital and there was no editing or processing done to the image.
In my camera bag
I have learned to keep my equipment simple the way I do with my image making... Digitally I now shoot using a Nikon D750 with two lenses... Nikon 18-35mm f3.5 and Tamron 24-70mm, f2.8... My favourite film camera now is the old Leica CL 35mm rangefinder, nice and small along with (my favourite which is usually on the camera body) Rokker 24mm, f2.8 and Rokker 90mm, f4...
Feedback
Use your talent for simplicity and you will have no problem capturing/creating images like this... They speak volumes without having to scream at you.
