Now a message to VIEWBUG!! This picture has been featured more than 3 times and you, in your incomprehensible "wisdom", have decided you're no longer going to put more than one in the awards list. I've asked you about it (because it's happened to me), others have asked you about it (because it's happened to them), yet you never offer a reason....just your usual yada yada BS!!

Wow, what is VB up to now? I tried to vote for this one and got "You are getting good at this...
Wow, you have gone through all the photos in this contest.
We invite you to help us find the winner in other contests. Continue". What the hell?
KayBrewer PRO+
 
KayBrewer March 16, 2017
And then it sends me off to vote for other contests. Another email to VB coming up. This is the second time today this has happened to me. Wonks! So I'd love to vote for this one, Unk, but VB, again in its infinite wisdom, has thrown a monkey wrench into the works.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in my garage where I often use for many of my stills.
Time
This image was taken on January 21 of this year. It was 2:42 in the afternoon.
Lighting
As far as lighting, I utilized the afternoon sun peering through the windows of the back door. The afternoon sun works fine at times, but it really was not enough for this subject matter. I was able to use my Sony ring light as a secondary light source. I adjusted the ring light to half power.
Equipment
I used my Sony a65 camera, with my go to Tamron 90mm macro lens. I mounted my camera on my tripod with my remote trigger attached to the camera, all to avoid any camera shake.
Inspiration
Being it was very cold and windy outside, and coming down with a good case of cabin fever and boredom, I decided to play around with some scrap paper I had permission to take from work. After a few minutes of twisting and turning the paper, my creativity kicked in and I decided to take a few shots.
Editing
As far as post-processing, I loaded this image to my Lightroom 5 to play around with it further. I darkened the background and added vignette in order to give it some mystery along with making it a little more pleasing to the eye.
In my camera bag
As always, I carry my Sony, my go to Tamron lens and a couple of Minolta Maxxum lenses. The usual cleaning essentials, filters and remotes.
Feedback
If you come down with cabin fever, boredom or lack of creativity, just look around you. Where ever you look there is something the that can be arranged and or manipulated into an abstract or a close up that is pleasing to you or others. Playing around with white balance and other settings can alter an image also.
