This is a photo of model Ekaterina. It was taken just after I first met her in Star Burger, a burger restaurant in Kiev city centre.
- Camera: ILCE-7RM2
- Focal length: 37mm
- Flash fired: yes
- Shutter speed: 1/60s
- Aperture: ƒ/4.5
- ISO: 1250
The image was shot with a Sony A7RII camera with a Sony FE 24 – 70 F2.8 GM lens.
Off-camera flash was used; a Godox AD200 with MagMod MagBounce modifier attached. The MagBounce is my modifier of choice when I need to add soft light in busy environments.
Basic adjustments were made in Lightroom. In Photoshop, the skin was retouched, face dodged and burned, and teeth and eyes whitened.
Final postprocessing took place in Exposure X2; a Kodak 100 film emulation filter was applied.
Star Burger and the surrounding area is shown in the map below.
