For most of my shots involving one to three people, I use the Chimera Super Pro in Small and Extra Small. Lighttools Soft Egg Crates allow me to control the spill and add punch to the light. And they're durable! They can take a beating and always bounce back. Lighttools is the best thing that ever happened to lighting - I never leave home without them.
