With all the shooting at my workshops I forget how much work my lights have to do. I blew the capacitor on my Elinchrom 1200ws mono light for the second time… boo hoo I’ve had it repaired in the past and I believe it was around $250. I blew my Profoto 1200 ws mono head and they wanted $975… ouch!? So one capacitor and two or three Profoto flash tubes in a weekend. Profoto flash tubes are 250 buck-a-roonies.
I went to shoot this today and I had to make a change. Instead of my Elinchrom Octobox as fill I used a bare bulb at the back of the room… opps I noticed once the shoot was over I had a small dark double shadow. Humm.
Thinking that double shadows are bad I remembered a couple of weeks ago my Anne Fontaine fall collection catalog came. The entire catalog is based on huge double shadows. My double shadow is teeny weeny.
So now I’m just a teeny weeny bit in fashion.6 comments
