Behind The Lens

Location
This natural light portrait was taken on top of Castle Mound in Cambridge, UK
Time
It was taken late afternoon during Winter with an approaching rainstorm. In fact, not long after the image was taken the heavens opened and the model and I had to leg it back to the car.
Lighting
This is a natural light image taken using available light. The lighting wasn't great given the time of day and also heavy rain clouds overhead.
Equipment
Nikon D750 with a Nikon 24-100mm lens.
Inspiration
I had never visited Castle Mound before, despite working in Cambridge for many years. So I took the opportunity whilst doing a fashion shoot with a model to go and check out the view over Cambridge. Whilst up there, I thought it would be silly not to take some photographs of the model whist attempting to show the view of Cambridge in the background.
Editing
Post-processing was kept to a minimum using Lightroom for adjustments
In my camera bag
I generally pack light when out and about and will typically only have my Nikon D750 and my Nikon 24-120mm F4 lens which is a very versatile lens for a wide variety of genres. It is definitely a lens I recommend any photographer has in their arsenal.
Feedback
If you're going to use natural light, especially in less than ideal lighting conditions, be sure to understand what the lowest shutter speed is you can get away with for hand held photography. If you find that you are still not getting enough light, then lower your aperture as much as your lens will allow. Should you still need to allow more light in, adjust your ISO accordingly.
