This behind the scences video takes a look at a photoshoot done by Hong Kong-based photographers Mike Pickles at a Reebok Crossfit gym in Hong Kong. for the shoot Pickles used a PhaseOne 645DF+ medium-format camera system together with a IQ160 digital back and an Elinchrom Ranger Quadra portable strobe packs.
As Pickles explains in the BTS video, one of the key reasons for using medium-format was the system’s capability of capturing a very large dynamic range. Pickles also decided to use our portable strobe system instead of our more usual mains-powered heads due to the flexibility and speed of moving these lights around without requiring trailing cords to mains outlets.
