Behind The Lens

Location
In Maitland, FL
Time
Around 4pm est
Lighting
The lighting on this was a simple 36" octobox set to the front left of the subject, and the sun as the rim light.
Equipment
This was shot with a Nikon D600, no tripod, and a Interfit EXD400 Digital Flash Head with a 36" octobox
Inspiration
I wanted to take a photo that looked like it was photoshoped, but was 100% done in camera. The bat was constructed from two wooden bats. We destroyed one of the bats to create the splinters and cut the other in half. We then attached the two with hot glue and aluminum wire.
Editing
Just basic color correction
In my camera bag
Nikon D810, Nikon 85mm f1.8, Nikon 35mm F1.8, Nikon 50mm f1.8
Feedback
Buy cheap bats! Over all I would suggest trying to think about how can this effect be achieved without using photoshop.
