Very creative! Outstanding shot well done

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this in my home studio which has a western facing window.
Time
This was taken in the mid afternoon time frame when the sun was lower in the sky but still very bright.
Lighting
I used the light shining through the window to backlight the straws.
Equipment
I shot this image using a Fuji S602z point and shoot type camera.
Inspiration
I was experimenting with different common household items and trying to see how I could photograph them to create interest.
Editing
I bumped up the saturation a bit and cropped the image otherwise it is as taken.
In my camera bag
I use a Canon T1i and a couple of basic Canon lenses now.
Feedback
It's all about the metering and making sure you get the different effects the light can provide.
