Thank you. I was shocked to become a finalist as it was an impromptu photo shoot.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in my kitchen.
Time
This picture was taken around 3:00 PM
Lighting
The main lighting in my kitchen is LED ceiling lights.
Equipment
The camera used was a Nikon D5100 with the 18-55mm kit lens. Flash was the built in pop up flash.
Inspiration
My wife and I were watching the powdered fall as she was shifting it with a strainer and spoon. We both thought it would look like a great Christmas card.
Editing
The only post processing was to bring up the contrast levels.
In my camera bag
My every day carry kit consists of the Nikon D5100 with Sigma 18-250 lens, speed light, spare battery, extra memory card, and my tripod.
Feedback
The two hardest parts were getting the right shutter speed and the right angle. I feel the best way to accomplish this shot is to fill the frame with shifter and bowl. One angle I did not try was to shoot down into the bowl as the powdered sugar fell.
