Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? I used two 33" shoot through umbrellas with 5500k CFL bulbs. I placed one umbrella at a 45 degree angle as a key light and the second umbrella as fill light.

What are you most proud of? The final outcome of the picture.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? No need for overly expensive equipment to start. I used a 60 dollar umbrella/light kit from Amazon.

I used two 33" shoot through umbrellas with 5500k CFL bulbs. I placed one umbrella at a 45 degree angle as a key light and the second umbrella as fill light. This was shot with a Canon T3I with a 75-250mm EFS lens at 65mm, ISO 400, 1/6s on a tripod using a 10sec timer.

I think this is a little too warm after looking at this further.
