Before the shoot I was thinking about how to capture these leafs without photography lights and lack of natural light. So I improvised and I used only my headlamp for hiking with a reflector. I was surprised how much it came out from this.

Behind The Lens

Location

I took this photo at home in my 'studio' room. It's not a real studio, but when I take photos of me at home I do always here.

Time

It probably was taken before sunset and finished in dark in the room.

Lighting

As I didin't have any studio lightning at that time, but was already dark outside I had to improvise. So I was thinking 'what do I have what I can use?' and I found my hiking lamp, so I used only this lamp to take the shot.

Equipment

This shot was made on Fujifilm XT2 with a 35mm f2 lens on a tripod. I also used the remote app on my phone.

Inspiration

I saw a picture with flower shadows on social media, and I was thinking about to creat something with leaf shadows. So I went to the forest and there I saw this type of leafs what I thought will be perfect. And I think it was a good choice. Little things, good results. :)

Editing

I did use Photoshop for post-prosessing. I was playing with luminosity on bw, also with contrast. I did some dodge and burn and frequency separation as well.

In my camera bag

I have one camera which is the Fujifilm XT2 and one lens the 35mmf2. So these two what I use all the time right now. In the bag I also have 2-3 battery just in case it's needed, because there is no more frustrating thing than having a good idea, everything is perfect but your battery is low and you do not have another.

Feedback

Don't give up when your muscles say it's enough! :)
