I am known to have some crazy ideas from time to time. I mean, I have five kids, a dog, cat, four goats, and a flock of chickens. And most of those were my ideas.
It’s no different when I am behind the camera. I will climb, crawl, and do whatever it takes to get the shot when I have an idea in my head. So I need gear that can keep up with me and my off-the-wall plans.
Like when I wanted to take a photo of my daughter floating on our pond. From in the pond.
Say what you will, but I think that having the perfect perspective and the perfect light for this kind of vision makes all the difference. Which is why you can watch me floating right alongside her on my own animal float (watch the video to see which one I chose!) and had my trusty Profoto A1X right there in the action. Small, lightweight, and powerful, this was the only light I needed to get the results I was after.
