Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in my living room.
Time
Taken around 3pm.
Lighting
I used two desk lamps for lighting. One lighting from above the other from the side.
Equipment
This was shot using a Nikon Coolpix P90 (fixed lens) and two desk lamps. The set up is a pane of glass out of a picture frame thats placed on spools of thread to get the right distance from the M&Ms. I then polished/waxed the glass so that the water drops beaded up nice and round. To make the drops i used an eye dropper.
Inspiration
Seeing other similar images around the web. I found them to be beautiful and wanted to experiment with them for myself.
Editing
Did some cloning in PhotoShop Cs3 to get rid of some imperfections in the glass that showed up on a macro level.
In my camera bag
Canon EOS T3i, 18-55mm lens, 55-250mm lens, ziplock bags, band aids and lens wipes.
Feedback
Make sure you polish/wax the glass other wise the drops wont bead up nice and round.
