Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken at Kim Weston's house in Big Sur. It was doing a workshop. This is the house that Edward Weston built in the 1930s. Kim is the grandson of Edward Weston and the nephew of Brett Weston. The picture was made in Kim's studio.
Time
Mid afternoon.
Lighting
Lighting was natural light. Mostly from the overhead skylight and a bit from the door. I isolated the model by placing her in a beam of light with a dark un-illuminated wall behind her.
Equipment
I used a Sony A7Riv and a 24-105 lens. No filter or tripod.
Inspiration
I experiment with portraits. I asked Kat (the model) to think of a powerful event in her life and try to recreate her emotions at that time.
Editing
Very little post processing other than cropping and conversion to black and white.
In my camera bag
I had my camera and lens. The camera strap has pockets for extra batteries and SD cards. I did bring a tripod into the studio but didn't use it for this shot as I wanted to move around more freely.
Feedback
Talk to your model. Show them you in process images on the back of the camera. Get their feedback, after all they probably have more experience than you. The model is your partner in creating art. Work with them.
