As photographers, working in a photography megastore, we are often the soundboards to the bigger debates going on in the industry, Studio vs Location being one of them. One of the arguments against location shoots was lighting, and what a schlep it can be. I stood firm on my argument, in favour of location shoots, with the help of the Profoto B1 combined with the Godox PB960.
I was countered with a “studio lighting is better” to which my ego and I boastfully responded “Challenge accepted.”
With Lappies and Graham assisting, we quickly arranged the shoot while I called in a favour from a friend visiting us from New Zealand. We set off one Saturday morning before work. In our true shooting tradition, we were running late and somehow got lost looking for the models house in Clubview, Centurion. We eventually found it and her and then went hunting for spots where we can shoot.
This field test was ideal for exactly what I wanted to prove.
