Thank you!

Behind The Lens

I took this photo in my house in my laundry room! This was my first time trying this effect, and I was very pleased with the results!
I took this photo around 5 in the afternoon.
Honestly, getting good lighting in my house is a challenge. It can be very difficult to keep the picture strady. The picture turned out pretty underexposed, but after post-production, it looked great!
For this photo, I used my Canon Rebel Xsi, and my basic 18-55mm lens. There was no special equipment for this photo.
I was actually on the internet browsing for photography ideas, when I came across an awesome video tutorial for this! After watching the video, I went right to it the same day!
This picture was ALL about the post-production! I uploaded my RAW image file to a photo editor on my laptop and got to work. I had to crank up the exposure and contrast quite a bit before it looked like the image you see now.
In my camera bag
Call me a simpleton l, but all I use for my photography is my Canon Rebel Xsi, and my handy dandy 18-55mm lens. You'd be surprised what you can do with such little equipment.
Try to shoot your vase or glass on a reflective surface such as marble or glass. The effect it creates is amazing! The next piece of advice I would give is don't finish your image without going through the post-production process! Up your contrast and exposure, darken your blacks, and lighten your whites just enough for it to look natural. Don't overdo it!
