Profoto recently shared a video where they collaborated with photographer Finn Beales on one of his shoots. Finn was charged with the task of making chocolate look incredible. For those of us that are foodies with a sweet tooth we know that this isn’t tough to do at all. But what Finn did was stepped up his game and got very creative.
Finn took melted chocolate sauce and splashed in around onto fruit and other things. Then by using Profoto lights was able to stop the motion. The video shows him shooting lots of frames over and over again–which is a testament to quick recycle time of the lights. But another way that they could have done this is with a long shutter speed and nothing else but a flash with a super fast flash duration. Profoto lights are very capable of doing this.
The images are artistic and technical masterpieces and go to show what some extra creativity can do for you. The video is after the jump.
