Magic

29th February 2016
These images were inspired by a talk I attended last year given by the great Jon Gray FBIPP. Having mentioned a stunning image Jon had taken of the Royal Ballet dancers to fellow Capel Camera Club member Trevor Williams, Trevor decided we should attempt to recreate it.

We had no idea whether it would work. Using eight speed lights and a laser trigger system, we set up four cameras between us, all with remote triggers. Nothing has been done in Photoshop, each one is a single exposure.

My favourite images are the last two, taken with my beloved Fuji X100T. What can I say, it is the most incredible little camera.

A massive thank you to Trevor for allowing me to come and play, to our lovely model and Brian from The Cottage Studio in Henfield, whose help was invaluable.
