I have had a Roundflash for a while now and enjoy its portability, ease of use and simplicity. But the funny thing is I actually end up using it off camera more then on camera, like a consolable soft-box, which is how the new version is designed to be used.
Last time Björn S was in the studio I had to rush of due to a minor emergence so it was time to apologise and finish off our shoot. Like the last few shoot we started off out doors to catch the last rays of sunlight then moved into the studio.
My fellow photographer this week was Stefanie K who I have wanted to shoot with for a while so I was very happy that it worked out and we got to finally shoot together.
I have been trying to get this post finished since Wednesday but so many things keep coming up that had to be done. This week I was out and about with Linda and Matthias joined me as co-Photographer.
The week I wanted to shoot outside with the Roundflash again. But due a few different events we shot 1/2 the shoot out neat the Rhine river and 1/2 in the studio. This week Carola joined me again as second photographer, originally we had a shoot based around the designer John Galliano but that fell through and Björns S jumped in at the last minute to model and save the day…..
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.
