Photographer Tim Wallace is not only known for his powerful and evocative images of prestige cars, but also for his exceptional understanding of how light works.

“For me it’s always been about light and experimenting,” says Tim. “ It’s always been about trying to get a story across. I always think that one single image should make a statement.”

Needless to say, this knowledge is applicable to any type of photography. In this video, for instance, Tim talks about how it came into play during a shoot of a massive yacht, when he used a single ProTwin Head equipped with a Magnum Reflector to overpower the sun in broad daylight and light up the entire rear of the yacht. He then takes us onboard and reveals how he bounced flash with a Softbox 1×6 RF.

    Fredrik,
    What did Tim use for a power source? He said he used a Twin, so I assume he had 2 packs. Interested in what pack and what were the settings in the “Rear of Yacht” shot.

      Hi Don,

      I believe Tim used two Pro-B3 1200 AirS battery generators. The ProTWin Head was then connected with one plug to each generator, blasting at full power.

    Fredrik,
    Thanks. I assumed it took 1800-2000+ws to get that shot. Thats allot of sun on the water.
