Great shot. Made her very erotic and sensual

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was take in the bedroom. I had MAC pose in harsh light being reflected off her skin, which graduates to dark shadows.
Time
This photo was taken at night. We had planned to shoot in the afternoon, but MAC was delayed getting into town so we miss shooting what we had planned
Lighting
We missed the opportunity to shoot in natural light and I only had one LED light in my bag. Most of my studio gear was still in storage, due a recent move for a new job change. However, I always have my trusty 85mm prime in my bag. With this lens you can make bad lighting or shooting with just street light at night work. This shoot turned into making lemonade when life throws you lemons. We worked with what we had and it turned into really great boudoir shoot.
Equipment
Canon EOS 70D Aperture f/1.8?ISO 2500?Shutter 1/160?Focal Length 85/1
Inspiration
MAC ... she and I had shot many times before, but we had never shot art nudes or boudoir nudes, just implieds. In light of the suboptimal lighting we had MAC thought this would be the perfect time to play with light and shadows while posing fully nude . She was right; the set was the best thing we shot that night.
Editing
Post processing was very minimal. I play with the saturation; bringing it down to almost black and white. Then I back it off just a little bit. I also cropped it get rid of distracting element at the left and bottom of the frame.
In my camera bag
My DSLR cameras have evolved over the years starting with the Rebel SXi to a 60D, 70D, 7D and 5D Mark III. Now I shoot with an 80D almost exclusively. My bag always has two lenses in it, an EF 85mm f/ 1.8 and the 18-135 mm f/ 3.5 - 5.6 kit lens and a dimmable led light for moments when AF needs a little assist. I also have a spare battery, multiple memory cards, IR remote, cable release, mini notebook (paper not a computer) and a couple of pens. Next year I am going mirrorless with the Canon R5, and the 80D with be my backup camera.
Feedback
Only shoot someone who trusts you and is comfortable being nude in front of the camera. If the subject is uncomfortable, it will show up in the images you capture, and neither of you will be happy with the results.
