      My vote for the best of the group, as well.

      Yep I have to agree with the above comments. How did you do this?

      My boss has a portrait sitting and this soft lighting would complement him.

      Thanks for sharing

      Umm....Errr... I would sure love to see some strobist info on this. Cool effect. One that I would like to try.

      I definitely see a rectangle of light on his face, so it must also be gobo'ed in some way. Did I miss that in your post? A 5 inch snoot maybe on the on-camera fill flash?

      Stunning light! Love the simplicity.

      Question.......Just bought the Softbox III.
      Bit confused with the technicalities..
      Use a Canon 450D and a Speedlite 430X.
      Do I use ETTL? How do I compensate for light loss of 2 stops? Metering? etc...

      Ok, I have to agree with everyone above. I love this shot the best out of the group and I didn't see it covered in the OA post you did of him. Maybe this would be a portrait you could cover on the blog for a "best of" series ...or something? :)
