Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.
This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.

Captain America is a superhero in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby and first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 (1941). As a frail young man, Steve Rogers was enhanced by an experimental serum into a super soldier to aid the United States armed forces during World War II. His costume is based on the American flag, and he carries an indestructible shield. He was played by Chris Evans in the films Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) and The Avengers (2012).
Duel 365 was a year-long project I started in 2010. The goal was to post one photo each day depicting a duel, usually between two pop culture figures, and asking the question, "If they had to fight, who would win?" At the request of those who came to follow the project, I also provided text descriptions of each character. One of the rules was to avoid using the same figure in multiple photos. Another challenge was that I was not allowed to use Photoshop or other advanced photo editors to create the scenes; all editing was done either in-camera or with Apple’s iPhoto software. Over 700 figures were used for the project, which believe it or not represents only a small part of my toy collection.
