Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in my small home studio (it's actually a garage^^ :D )
Time
since it was done in the studio the time doesn't matter of course^^
Lighting
The picture was lighted with a flash coming from the right/front (from model's perspective) pointed at her. I've used a big octabox on the flash. The flash was very close to the subject top make the light as smooth as possible.
Equipment
The shot was taken with the Sony A77 and the Sony SAL 16-50 2.8 lens at 50mm and f2.8 for slightly shallow depth of field. The flash is actually just some cheap chinese studio flash from a brand called "golden Eagle" or something^^ For the snowflakes we used simply powdered sugar that an assistant blew right from the hand into the models direction. The bigger flakes were from postprocessing.
Inspiration
There is a "indoor blizzard" series of the famous photographer Joey L. He posted a "behind the scenes" video of this shooting on his blog once and I instantly fell in love with that setting. So I decided to try myself on that with a "low budget version" ^^ Biggest change in setting was that I chose a darker background instead of grey for the mood (though it actually was a grey background behind the model and our first shots showed this, but then I decided to remove additional flashes that were pointed towards the background to darken it on the photo)
Editing
Yes, the bigger snowflakes came from postprocessing and I did the usual retouching (skin retouching, some d&b and playing around with the colors&contrast).
In my camera bag
Back then when took this shot my usual equipment was the Sony A77 with the Sony 16-50 2.8 for studio shootings and the Sony 50 1.8 or Sony 85 2.8 for outdoor shootings. Now I've moved to the Sony A7 and mostly use the Zeiss 55 1.8 <3
Feedback
Actually this settign is the super easy and low budget version of the shots from Joey L. For first inspiration just google "Joey L. indoor blizzard" and take a look at his video about it. Then just change the expensive snow machine with lots of powdered sugar and play with the lighting. And get a broom, because you'll need it afterwards^^ The expression from the model after each shot when she "bites" into the air to capture some of the sweet powederd sugar is priceless btw ^_^
