Hey, watch this! It’s another video showing the B1 off-camera flash in action!
This time we get to chase after Spanish portrait photographer Igor Artetxe running around Barcelona. Igor did this little mini Marathon to put the B1′s portability to the test. Igor and his assistant simply put on their jogging shoes, grabbed a Canon EOS 5D MkIII equipped with an Air Remote TTL-C, a B1 off-camera falsh and a Softlight Reflectors Silver, and headed out into the streets for some on-location shots.
All portraits were supposedly taken with the same camera settings (1/125 f9 ISO200). In other words, Igor trusted the B1 to automatically adjusts it output depending on the distance to the subject, the amount of available light, and etcetera. Igor also made a point of not retouching the images, except for a bit of contrast in some cases where the sun had came directly into his camera.
“I wanted to try all the possibilities and that’s why I wanted to go outside and use people from the streets for my portraits, everyone is in different places, with sun, with shadow, both…” writes Igor. ” A whole new world to discover and explore!”
