Behind The Lens

Location
This shot was taken in my home bathroom (has a skylight!). I am a self-taught photographer who enjoys making the ordinary look interesting.
Time
Midday the sun comes into the skylight best, so was a good time to take the shot.
Lighting
Natural light is the best for photographs as far as I am concerned. If I can use natural light in my shots, I will do it first before studio lighting.
Equipment
I have a Nikon and a Canon and use polarizing filters a lot. Always bring some extra food like granola bars and some water if you are out taking shots.
Inspiration
Simply put, the top hat. It is a brown color, not the usual black, so it made for a softer more subtle photo perfect for sepia.
Editing
Turned it into a black and white and then put a sepia tone to it.
In my camera bag
Tripod, cameras, filters and food.
Feedback
Experiment with your shots, don't be afraid to mess them up. Sometimes a tricky accidental shot will come out the absolute best!
