Hey all,

Next week I’m hanging and focusing some Source Fours for a show I’m lighting in a month or two. I’m using them as side lights, on booms in the wings. I’m hanging three on each boom for heads, mids, and shins. First, what lenses should I use- we have 19, 36, and 50s. How do I focus them- should I keep the edge sharp or not, and where should I cut the light off?

Thank you! My school fired the tech director, so my friends and I are flying solo this year.
