Return of Lord Vader

Not long ago in a galaxy not so far away,  I had the chance to photograph one of the “501 German Garrison” Darth Vaders. That costume was a 100% true remake of the Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Vader costume. The time was the costume was a 100% accurate version of Darth Vader in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. To be honest I was kind of excited as a big Star Wars fan, a new hope was the first film I ever saw at the cinema as a kid. I also wanted to time this shoot for Star Wars celebration this weekend

RoundFlash Mobile Softbox

And I have a new toy to write about. The RoundFlash Mobile Softbox 45 cm  is the first real solution I have found for converting your system flash into a ring flash. I have tried a few different variations over the years but was never happy with the results. After we all had a play with Toms one way back at the Palm Valley shoot, 10 of us put our money together and bought in bulk….

A busy week of bloging this week. Lots and lots going on, Monday night as usual I was out shooting with another photographer. This time Christine “Just in time” Lutz was out and about with me and Model Barbie Beatdown. The idea behind this shoot was to get out of the studio and shoot with our RoundFlash adapters.

Light and Dance painting….

I have seen several long exposure photos of dancers in the studio lately. They fascinated me with their ghostly shapes, and fluid movement. But I always found that something was missing it needed a bit of a kick. My concept was simple to add light painting into the dancers movements.

Luckily social networks allow ideas to come together, both of my associates for this shoot are people that I may have never meet otherwise. I have spoken with Piotr from B.I.K Performances a few times about different projects, but this was the first time our calendars matched. He basically danced 2 hours straight so a special thank you for such a great job.  Like every Monday I shoot with another local photographer, my original guest had to work longer but Micha was able to drop what he was doing and join the shoot.

Table-Top with Tobias

Well that was a crazy shoot. 4 Models cancelled on me with in 24hours of the shoot so we had to improvise, the last one just hours before the shoot. Tobias (from g+ not FB) and I had talked about doing a triggertrap shoot in the past, so even with a lack of models we would test out the possibilities. We both threw stuff together and meet at the studio for and evening of experimental studio techniques.
