Mike asked me to repost this photo over here. I am nothing if not cooperative.

Camera- Bronica SQ w/ 150mm lens
Film- Kodak TMAX 100
Lighting- Comet Strobe Lights
12 x 16" Softbox by Chimera
36" Photek Umbrella - Softliter II

Shot by me and blown up to 14 x 18" prints.

Notice how the shadows do not clog up to black and the highlights don't bleach out to white. I was able to achieve this through carefully controlling the shadow to highlight ratio. I used a main light with a small softbox and an umbrella fill light close to the camera position.
