Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken inside a makeshift home studio.. err.. my dining room. I saw this little bowler cap on amazon and when it arrived I had to shoot it, so i ripped off a piece of black background paper, taped it to the wall and started shooting.
Time
I started shooting around 6pm or so, this was the 3rd or 4th click.
Lighting
Paul C. Buff Large Soft / Alien Bee 800 above and to the right, about 3-4 feet away from Stella.
Equipment
Nikon D800, Nikkor 85mm (i think) Alien Bee 800, PCB Softbox
Inspiration
The amazon listing for a tiny bowler cap. ;)
Editing
Not much, lowered the blacks a little, smoothed the background.
In my camera bag
I don't usually have a bag, I'm more of a studio photographer, and my wife and I have a large assortment of gear. We shoot Nikon, Love Paul Buff's lights, and mods. I am also more then happy with my Mola dishes,
Feedback
This is a simple shot, but I highly recommend being patient with your pup/subject.
