On a recent shoot in Peterborough for Adventure Flight Co, Melbourne-based commercial photographer, Marcus Thomson, was faced with the usual challenges in creating another of his signature environmental portraits.
With no assistant and short on time, Marcus needed to light his subject while shooting into the low setting sun, maintaining a shallow depth of field. Using his Broncolor RFS 2.2 transmitter to enable the high speed function of his Broncolor Siros 800 L monolights combined with his Canon EOS 1D X Mark II, Marcus was able to get a shot he says he could never have got before.
“In the past, I probably wouldn’t have shot with my Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM lens with such a low aperture. But the autofocus performance of the Canon EOS 1D X Mark II gives me such a good strike rate for consistently sharp results. With the firmware upgrade and RFS 2.2 transmitter enabling the high speed function on my Move and Siros L kits, I’ve now got so much more flexibility with my location lighting.”
