Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Porto in a local tourism house. Buy the time I had a agreement with the owner. I would take pictures of the house for free and she would let take my pictures with Marta for free too.
Time
It was during an afternoon
Lighting
Just natural light of big old windows coming from de right, and a small round led in the front. I don't remember if it was used in this picture.
Equipment
My old APS-C Sony Alpha 77 and my 16-50 2.8 zoom lens.
Inspiration
Actually this was not my inspiration but Marta's inspiration. Her pose in this picture was spontaneous. I just did the capture of the moment.
Editing
Yes, of course. Some skin cleanup. Due to an accident with hot water when she was a child, Marta has some profound marks in her chest. I preferred to remove those anesthetics scars from all her pictures where it's visible.
In my camera bag
Sony A77, Sony 16-50 2.8, Minolta 70-200 2.8, Minolta 35mm F2, Minolta 50mm 2.8 Macro. Minolta Flash. Flash mount extender cable. Flash triggers,
Feedback
Natural light and a beautiful girl
