Day 5 of 365, happy tini

Good Wednesday Morning. Here I am trying to light that little martini glass that you see. I really need to clean house but, nah! That can wait till later, gator! This is more fun!
This is my Self Portrait for Day 5. I set up this to photograph a happy tini martini glass in participation with a Daily Photo Challenge. Today's challenge was 'Something Silly in your home'. Anyway, there I am kneeling down in the left corner. You can see the back of my head, arm & hand holding my camera to my eye. Don't know how much of a 'self portrait' this is but I caught this really quickly before the day slips away. Gotta run some errands. BBSoon.
Have a happy, happy tini day!
p.s. I had to add this as an afterthought: One of my flickr friends say this looks so 'mad scientist'! LOL...."COME INTO MY LAB...ah.ah.ah!" (that was my best mad scientist laugh which kinda sounds like the Sesame Street Count...ah.ah.ah! light reflector, ah.ah.ah!...)
Here is my little lighting set up. That is one of those little clamp shop lights with a daylight balanced flourescent light bulb. I needed a little fill so I propped that reflector umbrella there. It is kinda make shift but it is what I had. Makin' do and gettin' by!
For the photo challenge shot submitted, I used my Sony a200 w/ sigma 105 at 2.8, iso 100. It turned out pretty cute. If you have any suggestions, I welcome critiques for improvement. (see Happi tini photo challenge submission below)

Happytini Recipe:
1 1/2 oz. Rasberry Vodka
1 1/2 oz. Chocolate Liqueur
Splash w/ Soda
That's it. I never made it. Nor, never drank it before. But, if you make one for yourself, I hope it makes you happy! If you use this happytini recipe, write back and tell me if you give it a thumbs up or thumbs down.
