Kirt Voreis throws up a little bit of spray...

 This is a photo that Kirt and I have been talking about for a long time and finally created last fall. We ended up blocking a street drain near his house and using two hoses to create a puddle over about an hour or more. We shot it just after sunset, still a little bit light out, but at 1/1000 f/3.2 there was no ambient light visible. There's one light in the back left zoomed in and snooted to light up the water from behind and create a little bit of a rim on Kirt. There's also a light camera left and camera right in the front, both low to the ground and pointed up a bit and flagged to keep the light off the ground. There was a tiny bit of spill on the ground to the right of Kirt but I got rid of it by pushing the blacks up a tiny bit. That also pushed up the contrast a tiny bit which added to the look...

 Defo surfing feel to this one- throwing the tail and sending a huge fan of spray is one of the best feelings in the world. The holy grail would be to discover a way of emulating a barrell--- then you will have conquered the world!!! AWESOME PHOTO.

 How did you get the strobes to sync at 1/1000?
  • + 2
 Pocket Wizard MultiMAX and a variation of hypersync. Firing the camera and the flashes with MultiMAX's and then basically adjusting delays until everything syncs up nice. A couple of SB800's way in the back up high to the left of the frame to backlight everything, and a flagged SB900 low on the right in the front to light up Kirt.

 Cool, thanks. I didn't know Pocket Wizard MultiMAX existed...guess I have something to save for now.

 You can do very similar stuff with the Pocket Wizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 with a lot less work and money...

 Ian, could you maybe explain how you managed to sync the flash at 1/1000th?
FP Sync via CLS or PW? (not sure if PWs can support FP Sync)

  • + 1
 hmm, I had no idea multimax can do this magic too.... I'm just on the crossroad if to get tt1&5 for small flashes or go big with einstein and lion vagabond
  • + 1
 That's a big decision, one I still try to make every month or two. I have to say that I almost always bring bigger flashes, but usually use little ones. Just so much easier to carry...
