Actually, I did.

And last- he says he prefers shooting close!

It's obvious, isn't it, if you look at his profile pic on Facebook?!?

Again, the point is that he acknowledged it and chose it regardless. That's a bit different than saying there's no distortion. Knowing that it exists and accepting or even embracing it, this is an artistic/client choice. You could say knowledge is what separates an artist from a hack.

btw, if that model has +20lbs and +20 years on her, I will venture that she won't be happy with his choice.

At any rate, I'll desist from furthering the hijacking of this thread. The OP asked for opinion on lights, not room size or lens.

Please tell me what I can do better or differently. If you are right, I will be grateful as you have taught me something. If I happen to disagree with you, I will still be thankful as you have shown me a different viewpoint, an alternative method.
