What was your lighting setup like for this shot? I rather like it! Just 1 light?
Yeah, it was just one light. I wanted to keep it simple this time and it actually worked well. I had in mind to take some B&W selfies and thought that one light would give me such light, that it would illuminate just enough and the shadows would hide the rest.
I had one speedlight on a softbox on a stand on my right side and over the head in 45 -degree angle. The softbox was really close to me, just on the edge of the frame. Fired the speedlight via 7D's wireless trigger and E-TTL. Dialed the flash compensation nearly all the way down to -3. I shot at f/8, ISO100, 1/250th sec because I wanted to hide the ambient light as much as possible (the backround was white room, so...).
