Shaving box
A couple of months ago my mother gave me my grandfather's old shaving box. She asked me to take a few pictures of it. After thinking the shots out I decided to create a selfportrait. I setup the lights and tried different variations, modifiers, color filters and lenses. 
 
In the box I found a Gillette razor, Gillette razor blades, De Vergulde Hand shaving cream, a shaving brush and an alum stone. 
 
The first shot took a while to get right, but I'm happy with the end result. All the lights in the shot are flashlights. Two Bowens heads, one with a gridded beauty dish the other with an umbrella, and a speedlite with a Westcott Rapid Box.
 
In the right corner there is a picture of my grandfather.
