Thanks, fmian. Right sorry I forgot about the adult filter...
For that shot I rigged a large white piece of fabric behind a smaller (maybe 3' wide) heavy black piece of fabric. The flash head was then behind the white and shooting through it (or maybe bounced off a white card first...). You can play with the distance between the two walls of fabric. Fabric is pretty inexpensive and then you just need the stands, crossbars, and clamps to hold it up.Of course you can also use a standard softbox and then rig a Matthews black flag in front of it, but the nice thing about the fabric setup is you can make it as large as you want.
@Alex EfimoffCorrect, one light source is used, and you're shooting straight into it. Adding a reflector at the camera location makes it look like two light sources.Also, it's nice if your lens doesn't flare easily.

1. Are the hot shoes are standard Nikon TTL hot shoes (with contacts for the EVF of course)?2. Flash sync speed? I’m assuming leaf shutters with no practical flash sync limits.3. Will the built-in flashes communicate with Nikon speedlights via wireless CLS?
I would have liked an EVF too.
Am I the only one who thinks that a flash on top of a transceiver on top of a camera is a tenuous stack of gear with a cantilever load that's a recipe for failure?Also, the AF assist beam from the flash is going to move up significantly and may not sit over the camera's AF points correctly. I see this PW unit does not have its own AF assist beam to offset that problem.
Kind of Sally Mann-ish. I like them.
I'm more interested in the light which is very nice. Is it natural light or a flashlight or something else? Why is the camera important?
cjhacker23: And no hotshoe... Not even one of their bass-akwards Minolta hotshoes. WTF.
I have. Olympus XZ-1 + Sunpak 383 Super = Awesomeness. The hot shoe also also allows the use of a Pocket Wizard and PC adapter. It's quite useful.
YES YES YES! Woohoo!
