The good people at Phase One lent me a demo P1 XF with an IQ350 to play with over the weekend a couple of weekends ago. My friend Martin was happy to let me test it on him, so I set up a portable studio in his small kitchen =)

Here's the BTS and final result.

Decent results considering the equipment and effort. However, his head pose leaves something to be desired. I would have had this chiseled face/high cheek bones along with his steely blue eyes looking straight and down a bit at cam. You would shoot him at chin level. I find triangular shaped faces look scrawny when turned at 3/4 or more. Of course, it's just IMHO :)

Nice shot!

I use simple Honl gels that attach with 2-sided velcro to my speed lights (I cut them down slightly to accommodate grids).

The modifier is a 48" Fotodiox EZ-pro (https://www.amazon.ca …ywords=ez+pro+f​otodiox+48 (external link)). I used a Godox S-bracket to mount it.

Here's a few from that session if anyone's interested:

Also, must have been a heck of a sunset to be utilizing a full CTO gel.

REBELSIMON - Nice natural creation, posing & capture. Have a great season!
(& enjoy all that new equipment you accumulated during the winter months).

BRULES - Or, even an uncomplicated/strobist approach to gels:

P.S. Benefit of shooting in Canada is... that in most parts of the country, it's too cold for snakes!

Had I seen this shot without the BTS, I would never think this was strobed.
The background is pretty much the same exposure, if not brighter. I like to underexpose my backgrounds at 1- 1.5 stops when strobing couples.
Full power at f/2? Assuming you used an ND? If not that, it's impossible to shoot wide open in this light with 1/250 flash sync. Unless you Used HSS...

This was with HSS at 1/400th. Normally I underexpose the background more (using studio strobes or ganging up 3 speed lights). Without stopping my lens down, or removing some diffusion, this was as much juice as I could squeeze.

Using HSS decreases your power drastically! This is why I use a Profoto B1 in these kind of situations ;)

Ya, the B1's look sweet, I might sell my 200 f2 and pick one up.

Actually I don't have one of those, either.

This is why the CheetahStand CL-600X (external link) is such a great option — similar power (or even greater), with lots of feature flexibility. :-)
