Great light and color from an indoor event. Did you light and stay in one area and wait for the action to come to you or was the light just that nice?

The color is natural. I lit the gym with a softbox on a single head attached to The Beast and bounced it off the ceiling. I was able to move up to 90 degrees from the source.
