Studio Practice... The Hall girls

The setup:
Nikon D700, Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG, Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 AF-S VR Micro

New and exciting:
Alienbees B800 Strobe
Manfrotto 420B combi-boom
Alienbees 32"x40" softbox
CyberSync Wireless Transmitter/Receiver system

Backdrop: 105" wide seamless white paper (roll mounted to ceiling)

I used my Nikon SB-800 Speedlight mounted to shoot through a 32" translucent umbrella as the secondary/fill light, with the softbox and the speedlight both at 45 degree angles to provide soft, nearly shadow-free lighting. Very simple and a lot of fun. The softbox RULES. Now I need another one.
