Exceptional portrait photography

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this self portrait in a hotel room in Simi Valley, California. I was waiting for the rain to stop so I could go hiking and do shoot some landscapes
Time
This was around 1:00pm in the afternoon.
Lighting
Lighting was just the natural light through the windows and the little bit of ambient light in the hotel room.
Equipment
Nikon D750, Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art, tripod and IR Remote
Inspiration
Honestly, boredom. I had been in the hotel all day, and was just keeping myself entertained while waiting for the weather to clear.
Editing
Yes, Photoshop CC. Started out as a color RAW. Edited with Adobe RAW filter > Google NIK Color Efex Pro 4 > B&W Layer > Curves Layers
In my camera bag
Nikon D750, Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art, Nikon 50mm f/1.4, Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC, typical accessories
Feedback
Find a nice big window in a dim lit room on an overcast day, or if the weather is nice a window not facing the sun.
