Location
This one is from a (short) serie of studio self portrait from December 2015.

Time
Technically, from a photographer point of view, the time of the day didn't really matter because it was a studio shooting. But, from a model management point of view, it should be noted it was at the end of the afternoon, and the model (me actually) already had a few Jacks.

Lighting
A soft box, and that's it.

Equipment
A Nikon D700, Nikkor 50mm F/1.8, tripod, studio lights and commander, and a black background.

Inspiration
Sometimes there is no inspiration. You just want to shoot something, or someone, and you are to lazy or too drunk to go out, or you have no model at hand.

Editing
Nothing fancy... Contrast, levels, and black and white. A few days after the shooting...
