Behind The Lens

Location
This image was captured in my Ottawa (Canada) Studio. I was playing with movement and shutter speed. I wanted the portrait to be less static and more evocative.
Time
I like to work mornings in my studio, my windows are facing west, and I like the softness of the morning light through that window.
Lighting
Although this image was captured in my studio, I used natural light to lit it. Communicating the feeling I was going after was key to get the shot. Paid models usually have "their" look, and it is hard to break them from it.
Equipment
I used a Fujifilm GFX 50r with a GF 63mm F2.8. I also used an Manfroto tripod. I only wanted a motion blur from the model, keep the eyes somewhat "focused"
Inspiration
I am a big fan of MARK DE PAOLA (http://www.depaolapictures.com/). I wanted to create my own "emote" image. I was not sure how to make it mine and convey the feelings I wanted using blurs. Photographers are usually consumed by sharpness, as was I, so experimenting with this was highly rewarding and freeing.
Editing
There is very little post-processing. I added grain and accentuated the vignetting. of course did a B&W conversion.
In my camera bag
My go to camera in the Studio is GFX 50r + 63mm... This is what I am most comfortable with. Sometimes I will couple it with my 110mm F2. My favourite camera to use is my Hasselblad X1D with XCD 80mm 1.2. Great combo and great result out of the box.
Feedback
Experiment a lot, study other photographers, find your own voice, experiment a lot.
