Wow! Amazing shot. I appreciate that you took the time to explain your setup, and process. I`d try a shot like that, but nobody wants to see me naked...trust me.

I encourage you to try it out.... just wear something you dont mind getting wet :)

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taking in my shower :) I always joke about that.
Time
It was a regular evening. Not that it made any difference as we were indoors and without any windows.
Lighting
Yes, this has 2 lights. The main light is camera left, shooting through a softbox. The other one is really faint fill light coming from right above the camera.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D90, a softbox with a SB-900, a remote trigger, a tripod and a camera rain plastic bag to protect the camera from the water. Also a black sheet was used to surround the bathroom and give it the all black feeling....
Inspiration
Inspirations come from different places. This time I really just wanted to take a photo which resembled sprinkles of water all over. It was the specific word for a category on a photography scavenger hunt I was participating in. The Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt.
Editing
There is not much post processing. I changed the image to black and white, and then played with the contrast, brightness, shadows and clarity in LR. That's pretty much it.
In my camera bag
I usually carry in my bag a 50mm lens, a lens cleaner, extra batteries, a charger, a remote trigger, an intervalometer, a usb to camera cable, Sb-900 and SB-700 and an additional lens.
Feedback
I think you should try and try again until you get as close to your original concept as possible. Sometimes things dont work out as you envisioned, at that time you adjust and get the best photo available. You will surprise how many times that new vision turns into something amazing.
