"A Wide Angle Power Team"

5

This team uses a few "wide angle" accessories: First, take your LCA+ and put the wide angle lens on it. Then take your ringflash to have a widespread light with colorfilters and finally add to this combo the wide angle slave flash for an additional "wide power" light in your shots!

The best places to shoot with such an amount of light is in very dark conditions, I tried it in a club to take real close portraits of people and fire the power of the ringflash & wide angle slave flash in their face. First the people are very curious about this strange combo and are ok to try it out and be shot with it, but after….. “oh damn it! I’m blind with all this light in my face!!”.

Generally they don’t want to try a second shot, because the this wide angle team is very powerfull in light… But it is just perfect to shoot surrealistic portraits!

    Really nice shots. The lighting was really great - the people are easy to see, while at the same time, you maintain the club atmosphere. Cool combo!
