You know, Bart, I keep coming back to this image and think it's my favorite of the past year—so simple, yet timeless. Avoiding the usual jewelry and accessories keeps attention on form and light. :)

Are you not afraid that your multi-thousand dollar B1 will fall? I just noticed that it's just hanging off of the softbox

Trust me, it's pretty secure :D That speedring holds it real well... My only concern is the lightstand, I need to replace it with a C stand...

You had me biting my nails!!

I bought a C-stand last summer... then I bought a second ASAP. They are SO freakin' heavy and secure, you almost laugh at your other stands. I have 8' air-stands that I hesitate to use now. You need to use sand bags with the stands I found, just to make sure that your 13' high $3,000 structure is secure. I filled mine with pea gravel so in case the bag ruptures, it's a heck of a lot less mess to clean up.

The turtle base allows you to load it in your vehicle a lot easier. I also bought a few more accessories that helped a lot, PM me if you want the details, I feel like I'm hijacking the thread with a sales-pitch right now...

Here is one too (please don't blame me because I used 4 speedlights to imitate one strobe ;) ).

I used 4x YN560III in one white 150cm reflective parabolic umbrella. Speedlights set on 1/64th power and 24mm zoom to fill the modifier evenly. The light was camera left and about 4...5m away.

First time I tried the Brenizer method: I shot 5 images but had to crop. So maybe 3-4 images were enough.

EXIF:
t= 1/60s
ISO= 200
focal length= 85mm
f= 1.8

This is one of a series I shot of a newly wed couple last Sunday.
Single AD600 with 7" reflector. Used TTL for metering the strobe. Av for metering the ambient.

HERE (external link) are some more images, a pull back shot and explanation of my approach.
