"Even a 55degree leko is going to have trouble filling the front of a 3x4 Chimera from the distance of a common speed ring, isn't it? How do you get it to fill the front silk?

BILL: I'm very sorry, I got so long-winded in my response to lighting with lekos that I forgot to answer your direct question above.
I get the beam of light to fill the entire front silk in a lightbank by simply removing the lens barrel, creating a strong, wide, fairly diffuse light source. I've even taped tough spun over it to make a softlight. Shoot it through a diffuser to make it even softer if you wish.
Experiment and have fun. Just because a company makes an instrument to do one function, it doesn't mean you must use it for that function -- as is evidenced by the dozens of HOME DEPOT L.D.'s supplying their "Rube Goldberg" techniques to the FORUM over the years.
