You mean my shot? No, yours is very different and you have a much more interesting light set up then mine.

Thank you Stefan glad you like it, and yes I was talking about your picture, I know is not the same but it is quite similar so that's why I mentioned it :-).And to be hones I like your lighting, for that particular picture it highlighting different parts of body what was probably the purpose :-).

Your light is much more low key dramatic... anyway it seems as we are into the same kind of photography. Looking forward to see more of your stuff.

What is the size of the lastolite softbox and what do you think about it? I have a smaller softbox but I hardly use it. Thinking about getting a better one.

Well yes, low key light, dramatic result is what I like. I mostly specialise on wedding photography and when is time.. portrait ..all kind of portraits :-).

What I have got is Lastolite Ezybox Hotshoe Kit 60cm x 60cm (24" x 24") this one I'm using all the time :-), 80 cm umbrella kit, lastolite portable background black velvet and I'm more than happy whit it. All the staff is well made so I'm happy whit the quality if that is what you would like to know. The other thing is price, it is not cheep, but in the future if I need something it will be Lastolite again definitely. Recently I purchased Lastolite background paper, (different colours) but I didn't have a time to test it. It is small roll of paper, 2,72 x 11 m I thing. There is lots of similar products and brands out there, this is just my experience and opinion. Its great on location staff.
