f8, 125s, Canon 17-40 L lens @ 40mm, in-home studio, white canvas backdrop, 3 b400 flash units ( 1 softbox, 1 umbrella & 1 backlight) , camera tripod mounted with remote switch, and lots of patience. My 6 month old Bernese Mountain Puppy, Tess, who loves to pose in front of the camera. This is what she does around feeding time.
