      Hello Mike - can you expand on what you mean by 'grids'?

        Grids are a light modifier that give you more precise control over the light. It also gives that hard edge lighting look since it is so directional. Here's a link to a typical grid:

          Thanks Mike - I'm sure studio fans will appreciate this.

              Ok, I finally got time to create this lighting diagram. It's CRAZY season

              Technical Info:
              Main Light: 7" parabolic with grid @ f11
              Fill light: 3' x 4' soft box @ f5.6 1/2 - This was coming across her body to help create the shadows.
              Edge lights: Two 1' x 4" strip soft boxes @ f 5.6 1/2

                Thats awsome Mike, on the nail and crisp, the ballance of light just seams almost too good! With sharp control on the model's head and upper body!
                Its when I see shots like this that not only inspire me but bring you back down to earth and tell you that you have a way to go yet
                Respect!
                Ash.
