Behind The Lens

Location
I know this will come as a shocker, but it was taken in my shower.
Time
It was taken in the evening, but it doesn't really affect the photo that much as it was taken indoors with a flash and the natural light had no effect on it
Lighting
I wish I could say something smart right now, but there really is a minimal amount of effort in the lighting :D It was an off-camera flash bounced on some walls in some random direction, coincidentally giving a decent light. For me, the light and setup is the least important part of this image
Equipment
I shot this with what I believe was my old Canon 300S ages ago, with a flash standing on a foot somewhere in the bathroom
Inspiration
Oh boy... I am fairly sure this whole row of answers will be the worst in Viewbug history... haha. With this image I've always been tempted to make up some deep meaning and story behind it. But I don't like being phony. Inspiration was that I had never shot a shoot in my shower before, so I wanted to try it out. A girl said she wanted some photos, so I used her for it.
Editing
I did :) I believe there was some clarity involved, definitely some desaturation, and I even believe I had just started making selections for tonality changes in the background. This was taken 2 years ago, and I have been shooting for 2½ years, so nothing impressive ;)
In my camera bag
I'm assuming this is asked as if it was back then, and back then I was carrying a Canon600D and my 85mm lens. Probably also my kit lens, the 15-55mm. Very exciting :D
Feedback
Hahaha. I'm so entertained, specifically because I have nothing smart to add here. If you had asked about pretty much any other picture, I would've been able to tell you so much :D But this one was one big experiment that just so happened to be decent because of an interesting crop. SO THAT would be my advise: Some pictures can become very artsy with the right crop. I also mirrored this one to create some other story, a more open ending letting the viewer imagine their own conclusion to what is going on. Or something.
