Yup, we know. This is the third day in a row we post a B1 Off-camera flash review. But this one is a bit different. Reviewer Andy Kruczek didn’t just try it himself. He involved a team of students with little or no experience of flash photography.
Andy starts off the review, shot and written for Photo Professional Magazine, by saying:
“My quandary was how best to test it, and the answer came when I found myself giving a talk to students at a local college, Dudley Evolve in the West Midlands. Why not, I thought, get the students involved in a shoot and let them loose with the new Profoto B1 heads?”
Said and done. Andy brought four B1s, one Canon EOS 5D Mark III equipped with an Air Remote TTL-C, two Zoom Reflectors, a Softbox RFi 1×4′ and a Softbox RFi 3′ Octa to the Dudley Evolve college. With the students as his models and assistants for the day, Andy and his newly formed team created ten final images with ten different looks in just three hours.
Andy rounds off his B1 off-camera flash review saying:
“I hate the phrase ‘game changer’, but never was it more appropriate.”
The final images plus a couple of behind-the-scenes images can be found below.
