Minimalist Lighting

I want to thank Mark Warren for opening my eyes to the minimalist lighting mindset. I used to carry around some LARGE portable gear. Seems a bit of a oxymoron.
For a portrait shoot, I would normally lug around two 5 foot softboxes, 3 heavy light stands, portable power (heavy), 2 studio lights, cables, ect....and of course my cameras and lenses.
This image was made with Canon speedlights, 2 very small light stands, 2 shoot through umbrellas, and pocket wizards. I carried all my gear all in one trip without breaking a sweat or my back.
Thanks to Melinda for posing.
