That's the one I went with also... Excellent choice. Better than the Alien Bees stuff, not as expensive as the big league stuff.

FYI, you can use the AB grids with the Photoflex SB!

Happy to see a novice shooting with one light. Too often, we see beginners start with two, three, or more lights without any foundation in lighting knowledge. Blasting an image with all the lights one has, without any creative thought in process, result in lackluster, flat, boring images. Your images show direction of light, interesting shadows, beautiful shadow edge transfers, and highlight control. It's a good time for you to learn and practice some traditional portrait lighting patterns to further express your artistic vision in portraiture. Wonderful set of images.

Thank you Chris - I've felt the same way seeing others starting their studio work. I have read and been told to use a single light and learn to control that.
