Behind The Lens

Location
I took this image in my home studio.
Time
In the evening.
Lighting
I usually use very simple but effective light sources for my still life images. I use everything from small book lights to adjustable desk lamps. In this case I used a desk lamp to create an ambient light.
Equipment
I used a Canon T3i with a standard 18-55 mm lens on a tripod.
Inspiration
I have always had a love for history and nostalgia, so shots like this one usually bring back warm memories for myself and hopefully the viewer. I like to create images that remind people of simpler times and take them away from the chaotic, fast paced world around us.
Editing
This is a 3 exposure HDR image with some edge enhancements to give a vintage feel to it as well as slightly desaturated colors.
In my camera bag
My workhorse camera and lenses at this time are a Canon T3i with Canon 18-55 mm and 55-300 mm lenses. My camera is with me at all times for fear of missing a shot.
Feedback
My only advice for images like this and any other like it are to compose them in a manner that is not uniform or sterile in appearance. I also take many angles to choose from to get just the right perspective. I think many people over think arrangements of subjects and they loose the natural composition. Let the Artist in you do what comes natural and go with you 1st instinct.
