Have you ever seen a photographer use flash to freeze BMX bikers mid air? Of course you have. Have you seen splashes of color powder frozen in time? You probably have. But have you ever seen the two styles combined in one? We think not.

Christoph Jorda was born and raised in a small village in the Bavarian Alps. One day when he was a kid, he got a gift from his grandfather – his first camera.

Since then some things have changed, while others have not. Christoph still lives in the same village, and he is as fascinated by the area’s beauty as he was back then. But today Christoph’s hobby has turned into his profession, and the Bavarian Alps have become the scene for his stunning location photography.

Shooting a moving subject can be tricky as it is. But how do you give the speed of a professional cyclist justice in a photograph and at the same time capture the beautiful surroundings? Sports photographer Mark Dadswell mounted two Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flashes on the back of his car and let the light shine the way.

Being an experienced sports photographer Mark Dadswell has captured fast moving champions, such as Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps and Sally Perason, in action before. However, when he started thinking about doing a shooting with Australian cyclist Alex Morgan he wanted to recreate the feeling of movement, but also capture the natural beauty of the south-eastern coast roads of Australia. And doing it all under studio lighting. That’s how the idea of making a lighting rig on the back of a car came about.

We claim that the Profoto B2 is a portable flash that allows you to keep moving. But to prove it, we asked travel and lifestyle photographer Finn Beales to bring the B2 with him on location. Here is what he did.

When asked to think of a way to illustrate the portability and flexibility of the Profoto B2, Finn Beales suggested he do a lifestyle shoot in the Black Mountains in Wales.

The assignment required that Finn and his models travelled by car from their hometown Hay-on-Wye to the Brecon Beacons National Park, then further into the wild by canoe, eventually setting up camp in a small forest hut.

What’s the Difference Between TTL and Manual Mode?

What’s the Difference? is a series of video lighting tutorials. Each episode responds to a single question. In this episode, Jared Platt compares shooting in TTL and Manual Mode. The entire series, including all videos, articles and lighting diagrams, is available at our website. And feel free to leave a question to Jared in the comment section if you have one!

We were on location to photograph musical recording artist Mindy Gledhill and her tour bus. It was a beautiful sunny day, so the side of the bus was fully lit. This made it perfect to test our Profoto B1 and B2 Off-Camera Flashes in TTL Mode.

TTL is short for through-the-lens flash metering. With either an Air Remote TTL-C or an Air Remote TTL-N mounted on their camera, a photographer can set up her lights, turn them on and fire to get a perfect flash exposure. Then, with the touch of a few buttons, the photographer can adjust the TTL flash compensation right in the camera itself, and when using various groups, can raise and lower power on three separate groups (A, B, C) independently from the camera in TTL and Manual Mode.
