Profoto B1′s in the Studio

Sep 12

In Equipment, Field Test at 9:42am

After PhotoShop World, I stayed in Vegas, which is home base for amazing athletes and performers, such as Manu, above. I did more experimentation with the Profoto B1 units, and made some more strides with the Nikon TTL version of the air remote. I’ll post more material in the next couple of weeks, but the B1 itself has been a wonderful light to play with. I know they are principally designed for location, but we took them into the studio and experimented in a very controlled way. Really enjoying the control of these lights, and the design. Battery life is excellent, and the air remotes are bang on dependable. Lots of room to move with these.

Have a great weekend everyone! More tk….
