Congratulations, must have taken a lot of setting up and patience. Is the hamster reading "The Tail Of Two Cities"?

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo of my mother's hamster at her home in 2011. Her hamster, Claire Bear, was a very beloved pet. My mother has a vast collection of trinkets and knick-knacks and I really wanted to take photos of Claire using some of them as props. And this one of her seated at the desk turned out to be my favorite.
Time
This was taken in the late afternoon, indoors, during the summer.
Lighting
The photo was backlit with a window bright behind Claire and the desk and the soft, diffused lighting was ideal for the subject and mood.
Equipment
I believe I shot this with my Nikon D3 35mm lens.
Inspiration
I absolutely adore animals and I love tiny details. The hamster and the desk combined both of these loves into one and I just had to shoot them together.
Editing
I did very minimal processing on this. I believe I only bumped the contrast a bit and left the rest alone. I wanted it to stay simple and pure.
In my camera bag
I am never without my Canon 5D Mark III and 50 f/1.2 lens and my +10 macro filter kit. They are my holy grail items! I also have a Nikon D3.
Feedback
The best way to get these types of shots is to really get up close and have your camera/lens come into the world you're trying to capture. Don't be an outside observer. You have to put yourself inside the scene.
