Choosing booms, stands and grip items is difficult, especially if one does not know how the items are properly used together, or how to set them up correctly. I've searched for a thread like this but could not find one.

Please show images of your favorite booms, grip hardware, accessories and stands in action so myself and others may gain an understanding of how some of this cool stuff can be best used to fly lights and hold flags, reflectors, etc.

I'd go first, but I only have a couple Manfrotto stands and an Impact reflector holder.

This was back when I used Speedotron Black Line strobes for a shoot, and wanted to take a pic of the setup.

Here it is!

I turned off the background lights for the setup shot.

Here's another setup shot, this time with various images - and the result from the setup. I have a black flag off to camera right to help block off the light from the beauty dish from hitting my camera, and I used the softbox to flag off the striplight.

I also used a silver reflector on the right of the model to help fill in the face a little bit from the two beauty dish's lights.
