Okay, not quite a traditional "still" but it is a studio shot...

Shot with an AB400 w/grid for the background and an AB800 w/softbox and grid as the key. It was a really quick setup and shoot, taking about a half hour start to finish. The strobes were triggered by an eBay radio transmitter/receivers.
