Svartedalen House at Night #photog (EXPLORED)

Newer Older

LOBB (Large on black background)
Nikon D300 + Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 @ 10mm - 30sec, f/4.5, ISO 1000.
Strobist info: 2xSB600 with softboxes and 1xSB800 inside the house. SB600's triggered by IR and SB800 triggered optically (SU4). See notes on image.
UPDATE: Cablefreak took a behind-the-scenes shot.

I was out with cablefreak and Claes last night. We drove to Svartedalen (nature reserve) at night and hiked around for a bit.

We decided to drive further into the reserve, and then found this isolated, abandonded shed and decided it was the perfect spot to setup some flashes/speedlights and go crazy for a while.
It was -5.00°C (23.00°F) and it was about midnight tuesday night. But all that didn't matter when we saw how these shots turned out. Claes is inside the building, holding up an SB800 towards the softbox on the right, to give the illumination inside the building. Here we were, three guys in a nature reserve in the middle of the night, flashing away with 3-4 strobes at a time. I'm sure it must have been visible from far.
There were absolutely no light pollution on the horizon, at all.

I'd love to do it again. I will be posting more shots from this session in a day or two.

Also, proper credit should be given to Martin (cablefreak) and Claes. We all worked on this piece together, and both had their way with this setup, so you should probably see a couple of shots by them that are similar to this.
