“Propelling particles of water into a great composition takes several tries, and couldn’t be more excited about the final result. The goal of this image was to fill the frame with moving water and showcase this senior athlete and his physique. The light setup for this image consisted of a 35” Octabox on an AlienBees™ B800 overhead, and two Einstein™
flash units, with stripboxes, as kickers. All powered by Vagabond Mini™ Lithiums.”
