Behind The Lens

Location
From the inside of my fridge!
Time
It was late evening. The wife was at Zumba and the kids in bed, and I was bored...
Lighting
The ambient light from the fridge wasn't too great, so I put an SB700 in a portable softbox on the shelf below, pointing up.
Equipment
It was a Nikon D5100 I think, and a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, triggered by remote. The lens hood of the Tokina propped the camera up and kept it steady. Additional light was provided by an off camera SB700 in a portable softbox.
Inspiration
I had been joking for a while that my children's toys were out to get me. Whenever I came downstairs or turned a corner there was always something there to trip me up. I wanted to do a series of photos to demonstrate this, but from a different perspective. The idea of going to a fridge and finding something in there (Zuul?) and then capturing that awkward moment when both subjects wonder what to do next tickled me.
Editing
I measured the exposure manually, so I was pretty happy with that aspect. I did the usual profile corrections in Lightroom and then ran a couple of effects / brushes in Perfect Effect 4.
In my camera bag
I mostly shoot sport, so I have 2 camera bodies (Nikon D7100 and Nikon D90) plus a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 and Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8, as well as a Nikon SB700 and my trusty folding stool! Plus, it's always worth taking a couple of lens cloths for when it rains! One day I hope to make the step up to professional camera bodies...
Feedback
Think of a theme, think of a moment, a punchline and visualise it. The whackier and more surreal the better. Go for a unique perspective or point of view. Getting a camera into a shelf and arranging a scene in front of it takes a bit of patience, but the results can be so worth it!
