I took this shot last night (click for the larger version) using 2 Nikon SB-800 flash units: The first was mounted on a Bogen light stand, with a Justin Clamp on top to hold the flash. This SB-800 was fired thru a Lastolite 33″ 1-stop tri-grip diffusion panel to soften and spread the light. The second flash was placed on the floor to the right of the subject using the tiny stand that comes with the SB-800, (the subject is John Graden, one of the best known names in the martial arts industry. He needed the shot for an upcoming article about him in a British martial arts magazine). It was taken with a Nikon D-200, with the SB-800 set to wireless remote, so I could control the power of each individual flash from the camera itself.
