Rising Light is a monthly article series highlighting promising photography students from all over the world. In this first article we meet Casey Jade who is a Photography Major at the College of Southern Nevada. Casey used Pro-B4 Battery Generators to freeze splashes of milk. Here is how she did it.

Casey Jade chose the College of Southern Nevada because, unlike most other colleges that focus on the fine art aspects of photography, it actually offers a real-deal commercial photography program.

Considering the fact most artsy types her age make little of the business end of making art – Casey ‘gets it’. She especially appreciates the fact her teachers actually earn their livings as photographers, they don’t just teach it.

“This school is amazing. Honestly, I wouldn’t trade the experience for the world”.

Shutterbug’s Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flash Review: “The Battery Design and Capacity are exemplary.”

Shutterbug is a magazine dedicated to serious photo enthusiasts and working professionals. Recently, Shutterbugs’s staff writer Steve Bedell put the Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flash and the Air Remote TTL-C to the test. Read his review to learn what he thinks about them. 

“Like all Profoto gear, the B1 lights and accessories are built to take years of hard use,” writes Shutterbug’s Steve Bedell. “I particularly like the lamp head design where you just throw a cap on it and you don’t worry about breaking anything. The battery design and capacity are exemplary.”

Steve wanted to try the B1 Off-Camera Flash and Air Remote TTL-C on location. Doing so, he tried a few different setups. For instance, he did one in Atlantic Gymnastics in Dover, New Hampshire, where he used two B1 Off-Camera Flashes, one Umbrella Deep White L and his Air Remote TLL-C.

His conclusion?

“The Air Remote TTL-C controller is so simple to use that you’ll be off and running in five minutes. Once you get used to using it, the integration of radio control plus TTL makes everything else seem like old tech.”

“They set up quickly and can get you accurate exposures with little effort on your part. With the cost of top-of-the-line speedlights going for $550 to $600 with only a fraction of the power, the B1 lights make economic sense for many applications. If you have the need and the budget, these lights should be high on your shopping list.”

Man on Wire. Flash in Face. Chasm Below.

What do you do if you have a friend who strings lines across mountain chasms and walks across? Do you tell him to please stop? Or do you put a 500Ws flash in his face while he is walking across? Andrew Bydlon did the latter. And the result looks pretty darn cool. 

Remember this? If not, here is the short version: On August 11, 2014, we announced the release of Air Remote TTL-N – the clever little divide that allows Nikon shooters to do TTL with the B1 Off-Camera Flash.

To celebrate its release, we asked you guys to pitch us your best idea for a shoot, and promised to send whoever came up with the most exciting idea a B1 and an Air Remote TTL-N. That someone turned out to be outdoor photographer Andrew Bydlon. Andrew wanted to shoot his friend Scott walking across a line stringed across a mountain chasm. But to do so, he needed something portable yet really powerful. And that he got.

Now, Andrew has done his shoot and returned to us with some pretty stunning shots and a short story about the shoot, both if which you will find below.

When you are done reading his story, head over to The Caveman Collective for more jaw dropping cool outdoor shots. Read More
