This is my view of Big Red from my desk.  He rests on the wooden floor by my side while I work.  Today I decided to get the softbox out and take a few portraits of the dogs in our apartment.  The problem is that our place is so small there is always some annoying things in the background.  I used 1/8th power on my speedlite and a quick shutter/aperture combination to make the light falloff and blackout the cluttered background.  Even using this technique it took about 10 tries before I got a useable photo with no stuff in it!  I can't wait till we move into a bigger place!
