Behind The Lens

Location
My home studio, aka - my living room
Time
I think it was evening
Lighting
I used two Alienbee 800s - One main and one fill. The main had a 40" octa, the fill had a 3x4 softbox.
Equipment
Canon 7D with an 85mm 1.8 lens. Two Alienbee 800s at about half.
Inspiration
I needed art for my kitchen walls
Editing
I pulled it into Photoshop and upped the contrast and did a little sharpening. Many think this is an HDR but it's not, it's a single image. And it looks very nice on my wall, so mission accomplished.
In my camera bag
Now I have a Canon 5D MKIII, Canon 70-200 2.8L, Canon 24-70 2.8LII, Canon 16-35 2.8LII, Canon 85 1.8 along with various filters and cords.
Feedback
Shoot, shoot, shoot.
