Behind The Lens

Location
This self-portrait was taken at my house during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Time
This was taken around mid-day in April. I generally tend to work with natural light, so I sat in front of my south facing bedroom window.
Lighting
I wanted this image to look natural, but also clean and even clinical in a way; sort of like it's been taken in a studio. Working with natural light has always been a thing of mine as I truly believe it is what brings out the model's true beauty.
Equipment
This was shot on my Canon 6D MKII and using an 85mm lens. I put the camera down on my tripod in front of me.
Inspiration
Originally, this photograph was meant to be something completely different; an outdoor photoshoot at the Kew Gardens in London with a model... And that's when the pandemic struck. I really had to turn this project upside down, but oddly enough, the lockdown has really brought out my most creative side. This photograph is one out of four I took for this series that I called "Things I'd Be Doing" which focuses on my life during quarantine and the things I miss the most. The mask really symbolises what's going on in the world, and the fake plant is synonymous to my longing for contact with nature.
Editing
I normally try to do as little post-processing as possible with my portraits, and I was lucky enough not to have to do much with this one. I turned down the highlights and the yellow and green hue's, to achieve the mellow and earthy look.
In my camera bag
I don't leave without my camera that's for sure! I've been using my Canon 6D MKII for a little over a year now and so far, it's been my absolute favourite. I normally carry the regular 24-105mm lens, but lately I have also been using the 85mm for some more dramatic portraits.
Feedback
I think the main quality of this series is the idea behind it. I really thrive within my concept work mixed with fashion, and I truly believe that the best thing one can do to get their creativity out there, is to just shoot; try out different prop, play around with light, see what works best for you as an artist. I found myself frustrated a million times over not being able to come up with something new and fresh, but the best ideas always come to me when I'm relaxed and really enjoying myself.
