This week’s Phottix Weekly Photo is by Phottix favorite Phillip Ward and was posted to the Phottix flickr group. How was it shot?
My son Liem dressed as Eggs, the Box Troll for a contest on Amazon’s facebook page.
Lighting was falsh in the “high voltage” box at 1/2 power. Fuji X-T1
Fuji xf 56mm f/1.2 @ f/5.6
2 Second flash in a Phottix 36″ double folding umbrella (love the compactness of this umbrella). Umbrella and flash mounted on a monopod with a Phottix multi-boom, hand-held by my wife above, and camera left. Flashes was set to 1/2 power as well.
On a side note, my monopod, multi-boom, double folding umbrella combo is excellent when you are on your own. The monopod extends to 72″, plus another 16″ for the Phottix multi-boom, giving a good range of placement of the light source. I can hold the monopod setup in my left hand while holding the Fuji X-T1 in my right hand.
Taken in old towne Petersburg where there are still cobblestone roads and old brick buildings.
