Stephen, a local #parkour Athlete from @themonkeyvault floating above the ground doing a backflip at the @elinchrom_ltd booth at the @vistek #profusion expo in Toronto, Canada today. We used #Elinchrom's Hi-Sync technology to freeze the intense action with a 1/3200th second shutter speed and used the Elinchrom ELB400 and the new HS flash heads to get that high shutter speed. Crazy cool new flash tech. For a full detailed description of how we got this shot read the new blog post I put up on the Elinchrom site: http://www.elinchrom.com/learn/hss-hs.html
About a month ago, I worked on a surfing project that was sponsored by @elinchrom_ltd and @pocketwizard where I used five Elinchrom Ranger battery-powered strobes and the PocketWizard ControlTL system to light up a surfer on a wave using #Hypersync lighting techniques from 500-feet away. As far as I know, this has never been done before - at least not from this far away with surfing. For the full story check out the write up on the Elinchrom blog: http://www.elinchrom.com/articles/1704-hypersyncsurfing.html The surfer is Thomas Inhken from the north shore of Oahu. He is a pro surfer with some serious skills as can be seen in the image. My thanks to Elinchrom, PocketWizard and Tommy Inhken for their help on this project. Also, a huge thanks to Robin Dabney, @benreedphoto and legendary surf photographer @brianbielmann for their help pulling this shot off. Thanks also to Ben Reed for the behind the scenes video.
