How to capture a sequence of
frozen movements + sharp face of a
jumping model + moving background all together in ONE shot with LONG exposure?
Ask me =)
Process Day 1.
Playing with strobe light effect and long exposure.
Process. Day 2.
The lighting technique got the working name "Shiva Challenge" =) It is made with the help of 6 light-heads organized in two different "studios",- one for the hand movements and another one for face. The image is taken with 1 sec exposure at one shot. In order to make it possible I used such functions as delayed flash firing, strobe effect and high-speed flash duration of Broncolor Scoro 3200 lights.
Final Day 3.
For the final set up I have created 3 "studios", and added HMI constant lights for the moving background.
