Which member are you asking? If it's Mike Shalaby, it appears he's been banned, but I think that a lot of times they are allowed back in. I'm not sure where m.shalaby falls in this situation.

Myself, in my 9 X 11 sq.ft. studio I like to use 70mm modifiers. I do also use 135cm, but it can through a lot of light around.

It looks to me to be a piece of something (I'd use foam core) with aluminum foil wrapped around it. Then a pied of (I expect) mirrored plexi. As you can see the pull back shot its tilted via a couple of clamps and a roll of tape. :-) I'd be inclined ti use a 30" collapsable or if going the aluminum foil route, first I'd crinkle it up, then flatten it and put around the board. One nice thing about crinkled aluminum foil I learned a long time ago it that you can control the reflective nature with dulling spray. Even vary it across the reflector as necessary.

As for diameter of octabox; Presuming the model has an "average" head, it appears to be about thee times the width of her head. I'd put that at 36" or maybe even 30"

He uses the 47" and 35" from PCB, so it could be either.

It's 'Matt', and he won't be back, unfortunately. :( I've talked to him quite a bit over email, and he used to post over at FM, but haven't seen him around lately.. not sure what he's up to.

I wish Matt the best, but I also miss him around here. It makes me wonder which active contributer(s) will be gone from our midst this time next year...

It probably depends a lot on how civilized they can keep the discourse.

Flailing ego's can be such an impediment.

True, but I find the highly creative (even to say gifted) are disproportionately afflicted by this problem

I agree to a certain extent and I'm willing to put up with it because I can simply snag the good info, click and go elsewhere if I don't like the name calling and chest pumping, but the people that run the forum, well, they run the forum. There are others here that I find more irritating for sure, even more than I find myself:cool:
