Dear JIm
I did this day shoot with Aboud Dweck. We used my Contax 645 p45+ with 35-80mm (55mm for some shots, 35 mm for the 'on the ground ' shot

In the first Aboud volunteered to lay down (tired I guess :) and we tried without flash
terrible due to back light. I happened to have my 380 contax flash an Gary Fong diffuser. Worked like a charm. The guys were actually on two benches; even the 35mm wasnt wide enough from ground to face.

The interiors were with two profoto heads. In this one, the side head was weaker because we wanted some shots with soft shaddows.

May actually mask and drop in a different background.
I am learing a lot about lighting, and Abouds Acute setup was good as we had power at this location. I may actually but the B2 or Pro 7 for field work
