Putting the Profoto B1's through their paces.
Described as a cordless "off camera flash system" the Profoto B1 looks and feels very much like any other monoblock...except its not. I had read a huge amount of reviews on this new product, some praising it as the second coming, others damning it as a gratuitously expensive alternative to a speed light. Having used them for the first time I have to say that I am completely in love, they are solid as a rock, incredibly simple to use and deliver the results every time. This shoot was divided into 2 halves. Firstly, I went with the incredibly talented Janet Horn - singer, songwriter, guitarist, model, actress, vocal coach, the list goes one - one evening to Preston Rock garden. The following day we set off to Saltdean beach. Janet is so comfortable in front of the lens and with the 2 B1's at my side we produced a stunning set of images. Big thanks to Mark for assisting.
