If it wouldn't be giving away any trade secrets, where are your strobes positioned?  +/- 90 degrees?  Are they pointed at the subject or bouncing off the background?  Any snoots/grids on the strobes?  Man, I'm nosy! ;)

I have a colorful background and I have two strobes on each side pointed directly towards it. so technically all the light is bouncing from the background

cognisys-inc.com has a system that i feel is affordable that aids you in taking photos of such things and more. Really neat stuff.
