I just wanted to share an Interesting video of a photographer using a bunch of flashes to capture a relatively fast going jet.

Interesting idea....but obviously wouldn't use a hasselblad camera if it has a 1 sec. delay while shooting.
In the end, I think the guy discovered the trick that most A.net photographers already know.....panning.



I'd rather be flying.

Its amusing reading the various comments to that video.

Of course he could have used a DSLR and got a 'snap' of the aircraft with a lot less hassle. But it wouldn't look like the result he got.

While I'm not overwhelmed by the image, I am impressed by anyone who can visualize what they want as the final result and then make it happen (whatever the cost!) Its the difference between 'taking' and 'making' a picture.

Cheers,

Colin

I appreciate the photographers approach which is more like shooting a model at a fashion shoot rather than an aircraft   like the one's in Vogue, Cosmo and etc.

The jet aircraft they were using was relatively small, I really wonder how many flashes he would need to shoot an airliner such as 747 or 380



I just want to share one more video here, I know it is out of topic but didnt want to start a new thread just for this, a very low cost video this time with GoPro

I remember a long-exposure / approach / belly shot at night that appears to be illuminated by a sort of flash here in the database ... not time to look for it at the moment though
