Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in the town of Balakovo, Russia. There were a lot of bathing people and splashes of water around. It was really challenging to leave everyone but the model Anna out of the frame!
Time
I took the photo in the evening, at sunset. It was very hot.
Lighting
The model was lit with natural light only. The sun disappeared behind a cloud and I took the photo.
Equipment
I used a very modest camera with a vintage telephoto lens. The reliable Olympus E-420 with a 100mm manual lens.
Inspiration
I was inspired by some glossy magazine style photoshoots and explicit vintage look trends. I prefer natural, vintage and even cinematic look and also love classic staged photography.
Editing
I did some minor post-processing as usual. Next to nothing.
In my camera bag
I normally have the modest Pentax APS-C DSLR camera with me with the cool, classy, sharp and discreet Pentax 40/2.8 limited. My next piece of gear is probably a top-notch polarizer.
Feedback
The model should be slim and gorgeous, be able to pose, you must be natural, funny and unobtrusive. Use simple old lenses, try converting into black-and-white with a digital filter and using some dodge and burn technique. Create natural looking images.
