First time trying a "studio" shot

One of the voters asked about the lighting setup so here it is.

In the background, I placed a blue posterboard on an end table about 2 feet high. I placed my SB800 flash on the ground and angled it up to flash on the board. The flash was diffused.

The glass was on a different end table in front of the posterboard. The flash was in between them on the ground.

I focused the camera and turned off all the lights in the room and took the picture.

Thanks for the great comments!
