Thanks indeed! BTW, what sort of flash had he mounted on the lens? I've never done this sort of studio work but might be interested at giving it a go one day

It looks to be a ring flash.

Yes but not Pentax I assume?

It's interesting for me as I had expected for this sort of work a LS lens, which given the rate of his shots and the need to recock these lenses is unlikely. Also the documentary speaks of "wide angle" lenses. So is the flash's speed enough to eliminate blur at 1/60 even with ambient light?
