OK, here are the steps from no diffusion to full. For the no diffusion shot, I still left the snap on (Stofen-type) diffusers on the flashes in order to simulate a bare bulb source. Note that, due to the short distance to subject and low ambient, I used only 2 speedlights instead of 4. The only thing I changed between shots, aside from stacking the diffusers, was the power of the lights in order to keep the exposure constant. Total loss with both diffusers in place was 1.3 stops.
I hope to have someone sit for me soon but, until then, we continue with the fruit theme.
