Tex Perkins, Sometime In The Early ’90s

Beasts Of Bourbon, if you we around when they were you were usually guaranteed a good night out. Not sure when I shot this but it was on transparency film pushed two stops, so probably 1600 ISO. Still amazes me how good they look, digital would kill it for technical performance but a look and feel of film has a certain quality all its own.

Andrew Meets The Bowens XMS

Hanging out with the amazing artist Andrew Grant, brilliant and making a name for himself with some cracking work.

Got to test the new Bowens XMS flashes with the trusty H5D-50, brilliant combination! Shooting at 1/800 of a second and the flash is perfectly exposed thanks to the new XMS trigger, syncing at high shutter speeds with the in lens shutter on the ‘Blad lenses is a breeze.

For this portrait I was at f12, 1/800 sec 100 ISO so the 500 watt head was dialled up but it recycled as quick as I could pull the trigger- nice one Bowens!
