    that's quite a change from my little popup flash:tongue: but awesome to see, thanks! I don't see any props, was this a portrait shoot or something?

    It would be very cool to be there and watch it all come together, Bob - meanwhile, I'm thrilled to live vicariously thanks to you and your handy GRD.:biggrin:

    Thanks, but we are just setting up, building the sets, putting the lights so no props yet, or talent to shoot, we will spend the whole day here setting up, my producer was very nice to my crew by letting us setup today instead of tomorrow(Super Sunday), then we shoot this project on Monday break down setup in a different studio on Tuesday, shoot Wed and the Set up and shoot in my studio on Thursday, In case you are wondering why not all in my space, while mine is a nice space it just is too small to do this many setups

    Wow, really looks like a lot of work Bob. Your crew must think its pretty funny that with all of the firepower at your disposal to see you walking around with a little GRD in your hand.
