for headshots you obviously point the BD towards their faces, but for full length body shots, where is the best position for the BD? still above like a softbox, or more level with their body?

It can be used like any other modifier. With a grid on however, you'd be better off lighting the face because of the narrow light spread.

Great shot! I've seen a few images like this where the picture is in black and white and has a colorful flare across the image. Is this an action/preset?

get a larger bd - the bd loses its effect when it gets further and further away from your subject - though when i need to light the whole subject i still boom it

I haven't made a contribution to this thread in some time. Here's mine from this weekend. Used an AB1600 with a Kasey BD socked.

IMHO ..... when I light a subject, I look at where the shadows and catch light are. Subjects have different anthropometric ... so angle and positioning is always different.

Its called a lightleak. Its far more common in the film days when your shutter would malfunction. Today you can find textures and such online to simulate the same effect

Like the lighting effect here; if the EXIF is right, you shot this in the middle of the day, hence the ND filter, right?

Also, how do you mount your Mola to your AB? I'm planning to use the Kacey adapter on my Demi arriving soon, just curious if that's what most people use.
