Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in my spare room in our house. I have all my photography gear there, so that is basically my go-to location for photography projects.
Time
Late afternoon early evening. The time of the day really doesn't affect this type of indoor portraiture as far as available light required.
Lighting
I used 2 softboxes with speedlights inside them. One at each side of the model (me), one at a 45-degree angle and the other at around a 60-degree angle. That's how I get the slight shadows on my face. Used a remote trigger for my Nikon.
Equipment
Nikon D90, Nikkor 18-105 mm f/35.-5.6 lens, remote trigger, 2 Softboxes with a Nikon SB700 and a Nikon SB900 for speedlights, tripod for my camera.
Inspiration
I wanted to take a photo of a dark suffering and pain but at the same time a bit mystical and fantasy-like ... kinda vampire-Lycan (Underworld) related.
Editing
Oh yes... the image was pushed into Lightroom and the contrast and brightness were increased, along with the clarity and the saturation (on the reds). Details enhancement a bit of noise reduction.... darkened the blacks. A bit of cropping and a bit of structure and dehaze.
In my camera bag
My Nikon D90, my 50mm lens, speedlights (SB900, SB700, and SB600), remote trigger, intervalometer, battery backup, sd cards, lens cleaners, a quarter, tethering cable. I think that covers most of it.
Feedback
Practice practice practice, change your perspectives and angles (even if you are not sure it will work). Try different post-editing ideas and if the result doesn't clearly work for that specific topic, it might work for other topics if you open your mind and think a little differently.
