Preston, Profotos, Motorcycle

My buddy Preston of Trauscht Photography recently got himself some new lights. As required by the laws of the photo-gods, we spent a day shooting with his new Profoto D1 heads as soon as he unpacked them.

Shame he isn't actually a motorcycle mechanic...

Anyway. 5' octa camera right for the key. bare head camera left and behind some shelving units, nuking through the workbench and the cabinets for some background.

Hardest part was getting the exposure right for the headlight to show up; it is old and not very bright. I think I ended up with both lights near the bottom of their power capabilities.

It was great working with profotos again and shooting with Preston. Check out his work at
