The Strobes of Doom

Robert O’Callaghan was visiting Manchester for an RPS event, so last night he popped by the studio to shoot some plates and try out his new Elinchrom Strobes…. all 16000 w/s of them!!!!

Granted we only needed 8000 but its nice to know he has that capability.

We were joined by Mark Scholey and Mark Voce for a chippy tea and some ale.

Various lenses from f4 – f4.5, one (HUGE) pop of flash and about a meter or more from the subject. 5 month old collodion.


Some quarter plates…

Robert a selfy with helpy.

Mark Scholey by me.


So, good to know his strobes work well and he has plenty of heads/packs for some creative lighting. These were shot with just one bare 8000w/s head and a reflector the other side.

Was good to meet up again Robert.

I think I need to upgrade my mobile phone as the camera on this one is getting worse!
