Curious to know how Blair Bunting created his jaw-droppingly stunning Super Bowl commercial? We can give you a hint. The B1 and Profoto High-Speed Sync was involved. Keep reading to learn the rest.
Blair Bunting, award-winning commercial photographer based in Phoenix, Arizona, has blown our minds more than once. But this time he took things to a whole new level.
Using B1 Off-Camera Flashes upgraded with the recently released High-Speed Sync upgrade, Blair shot super sharp still images that was layered and fused in post production to create a moving still image (if that makes sense).
The effect is reminiscent of slowmotion video, but with the clarity and detail of a still image.
Blair calls the effect parallax.
“What is parallax?” he asks on his blog. “Think of when you were in grade school and you had to do one of those cheesy plays where every parent in the audience thinks that his or her child should be in search of a talent agency because they memorized 23 words and did not faint on stage. Sorry, got distracted there. Anyway, there is always a part in that play where some kid is on a boat made of a tricycle and cardboard, and they are in the rough ocean. In order to create this imaginary ocean in the elementary school cafeteria, they use whats called parallax. This is where they have on set of blue waves on a stick in front of the kid and one behind. The movement of these waves back and forth creates in your mind the idea of the ocean.”
