Behind The Scenes: Boxing Portraits of Raquel Miller with Profoto D2 Strobes

11/24/2016 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments

We have waiting this moment for a long time. Master of light Alexis Cuarezma is back with a new and instructive behind the scenes with the Profoto D2: Boxing Portraits of Raquel Miller.

Meanwhile all photographers want to shoot early in the morning or at sunset, Alexis  loves shooting around 1-4pm when the sun is high in the sky. 

The reason is, because when I have strobes on location, I can get an extremely blue sky and turn the sun into a nice starburst. That requires a lot of power which is why I was excited to put these 1,000w/s D2’s to use. - said Alexis-
