Born to Fly

I held a workshop for Canon yesterday where we set-up a few photographs that demonstrated the capabilities of their amazing EX 600 RT speedlites.  I use these lights almost every day in my advertising work, but I’ve never had the opportunity to shoot with so many flashes at once.  These clever little devices are all wireless linked and operate with effortless efficiency, so although this shot looks complicated it was a relatively simple execution.

I chose my reliable Maori warrior Eds to be the star of the show and what an amazing job he did!  This man knows no fear: strutting his stuff dressed in nothing more than a loin cloth, in front of an audience of 50 people, did nothing to faze him.  He certainly kept the crowd entertained . . . especially the ladies in the front row.
