Blog posts that start with the phrase “do not try this at home” tend to grab our attention. The Strobist’s latest post is no exception.

The post in question takes us behind the scenes of Paris-based photographer Ludovic Taillandier’s futuristic Tronized Beauty series. Taillandier, who apparently was eager to experiment, equipped himself with novelty laser pointers, which he boldly pointed at his model’s face. Hence the warning.

Apart from the laser pointers, Tailliandier used 3 Profoto lights, powered by 1 D4 Air generator. He also used  2 softboxes and 1 snoot to shape his light.

Recommended read. Just do not try it at home…
