      May I ask what light stand you're using for the main light. I have that same boom arm, but the light weight stands that came with my kit aren't going to hold up any weight. Thanks.

      Hi StudioDee,
      The stand is this one:
      www.fjwestcott.com/products/product.cfm?itemnum=9910&...
      from Westcott. Model #9910 (10 footer). I don't know much about light stands, but this one appears to be nice and solid, even more so now that I put sand bags on it!

      Oh and by the way, amazing shot here. Love what that triflector does for the quality of light on his face.

      How do you like the Spiderlites? Im thinking of picking up a pair but have my reservations based on the power limits i've been reading. I would primarily be using it just about as close as you are.

      I won these. They were great to get me introduced to studio lighting. So easy and not intimidating. Eased me into the monolights, so for that, they served me well. But the high ISO's will most likely prevent me from using them in the future. Maybe the newer TD6 is better.

      I agree. The TD6's would be good. Was thinking about using them for food photography but would have to be paid quite a bit to justify buying them lol.
