I ran across this video about Profoto's B1 off camera flash in their archives. It's short, to the point and while normally I HATE videos with English subtitles, French action photographer, Christian van Hanja does an outstanding job playing with the B1's TTL function.
Over and over again you've heard comments from photographers about the B1 being a "game changer"...If you haven't had a chance to personally see this amazing gear in action, it's time to visit a Profoto USA dealer. This is pretty remarkable technology. It's giving photographers a creative edge to take their work to a completely different level.
Hey, we got a new video showing the B1 off-camera flash in action for you. This time it’s French action photographer Christian van Hanja shooting a flatland BMX biker with the river Seine and a flaming Parisian sky in the background. As you can see in the video, the BMX biker was constantly moving, but thanks to the B1’s unique TTL function, short flash duration and fast recycling, Christian nailed the sequence shot. Christian shot at ISO 200 and
f 4.0 with the B1’s freeze mode activated.
You’ll find more of Christian’s work at his website.
