On April 16, Profoto introduced two new HMI lights to our line of continuous lights sources: ProDaylight 200 Air & ProDaylight 400 Air. We wrote a short post about it yesterday, and if you want to know all there is to know about it, you should definitely check out our new webpage dedicated to the subject.
Today, we present the first video and the first batch of images we have seen shot by someone who does not work at Profoto, using the ProDaylight 400 Air. The man behind the camera is Gordon Andersson – freelance photographer and professional blogger in Stockholm, Sweden.
The video was filmed with the Nikon D800, 45mm PC-E, f/2.8, 1/50s and iso 200. The images was shot with the same camera, but instead of using the lens, Gordon decided to shoot through his large format camera, f/5,6-8, 1/30s and iso 800. (See video below.) The result speaks for itself.
Also, the fact Gordon’s video is like a moving portrait is a beautiful demonstration of how the ProDaylight units blurs the line between still and moving images. Thanks for for sharing, Gordon!
