Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at a meadow close to my home in Son en Breugel in front of the wood. I was there for an experiment with a new lens I rented.
Time
It was my time to spent some time with my daughter, mother went for a lunch dip sleep and my daughter wanted to go outside. (around 13 o'clock). Because I made already made more photo's of her, she enjoyed the should. She enjoys making photo's for about an hour and than it really ends. Going home, making the photo ready.
Lighting
Running challenges and winning some, I went in a learning curve. Beside the composition and storytelling image, I learned playing and managing the light makes a huge difference in photo. I love shooting with a flash to have full control of light, but this photo was made with natural light. All peaces felt together, I was as at the right place at the right moment, with the right equipment. I learned the base of photography from my grandfather and my father. In meantime I'm the 3th generation photographer in my family.
Equipment
The image was shot with a Nikon D850 at iso64, at 1/3200s. The lens used was a Nikkor 105mm f1.4 at f1.4 I did no use any other equipment.
Inspiration
The inspiration is came from the drive that I wanted to get the best church communion and confirmation shooter in the world. I love shooting children and have about 100 children a year in front of my camera including their families, for which I get about 5 minutes to take "the" shot. I shot with in mind photo's with a huge separation between fore- and background, and those image inspired me a lot. However, I was searching for an optimum between real experience and the excellent photo. I like creating photo's which are in balance with the reality of the environment at the moment I took the shot. I like to include a little context to keep the feeling with the location. Some Russian & Ukraine photographers were real examples for me and inspired me for years. Therefore I tested many lenses but the distance to my model was key for the final choice. I did not want to be to close or to far away. This shot was meant to grab the fun a child can have if playing with the toys of nature. It should have a kind of dreamy effect and should bring the viewer into this emotion and cuteness. I think I succeeded very well with shot and it became one of my favorite shot made.
Editing
I always shoot Raw, not that I do not trust jpeg, but it is hard to catch the complete experience an feeling of the reality that moment in one shot. Therefore I always shoot RAW and do some post processing to correct the composition-frame, to correct colors, light and dark (exposure) dim or even give some additional boost to effects like sun, erase some skin issues etc. I have a pretty fixed process-flow for every photo.
In my camera bag
Default I have a Nikon D850, Nikon D750, two Godox TT685 speedlights with triggers, and the Tamron G2 trinity (70-200mm, 24-70mm and 15-30mm) series in my bag. Additional some filters (Polaroid, and ND and about 4 batteries in total (Each camera loaded and a backup battery)
Feedback
First rent lenses and have a look what feels best to your way of working. You need to be sure that you feel comfortable. Specially if you shoot wit children. Not to close, not to far a way. Let them see what you do, show the your photo's made and the enjoy it.
