Thanks, Marco! You no doubt saw it on the other forum as well?

Thanks Steve. It was a very simple light setup. I picked up the Flashpoint Q Series light modifier kit from Adorama a few weeks ago. It comes with a 6" beauty dish, 3 grids to go in it as well as 3 color filters and a diffusing filter. It also comes with a snoot and an egg shell looking thing that works similarly to the Lightsphere. For this shot, I used the beauty dish to provide the main light and a grid spot. I used the snoot to light across the center of the receiver which is providing the hard light and shadows.
Please tell me what you think of my photos. I'm always looking for brutal honesty so I can improve my work.
