This is such a cool thought and wonderful photograph. One thing I like about Viewbug is I can see the world from my desktop. ;-)

Beautiful shot!

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in the tidelands of my hometown Cuxhaven in northern Germany. In the Background ist the landmark beacon of Cuxhaven: the "Kugelbake"
Time
I wanted to take some pictures during sunset.
Lighting
Not much to say about the lighting, it was all the sunset alone :-)
Equipment
I used my Canon 5d mark iv camera with my 24-70mm 2.8 lense
Inspiration
I saw another photographer in the tidelands using this little sphere to make some pictures. I just walked up to her and asked if I could use it for a couple of pics as well. I have never used a glass sphere before, so I was curious how this would work. I took a couple of pictures and was amazed by the outcome of all of those pics!
Editing
not much, only editing the colors and contrasts a bit in lightroom
In my camera bag
of course my camera, and usually my lenses: 24-70mm 2.8, 100mm macro 2.8 and 50mm 1.4. Those are mostly the lenses I use all the time.
Feedback
Just go out there and try to capture some great lights with a glass sphere. You will be amazed on how it looks afterwards!
