From the Profoto Blog:

"There are days when the whole world seems to smile upon you. But there are also days when the forces of nature seem to conspire against you. This shoot belongs in the latter category…
 
The shoot was done at Långtora Airfield outside Stockholm, which is the airfield where my gliding club is based. The look we were going for was a modern version of the flying ladies of the 1940s. Quite a few of the classic Hollywood stars flew gliders. The particular glider we were borrowing for this shoot was used by the Danish air force during the 1940s to train fighter pilots. Some people at the club claim that the gilder was once flown by Greta Garbo. But that fact is still to be verified…
 
Lighting-wise, we planned to shoot with sunlight and Collapsible Reflectors only. I wanted a subtle and natural backlight in the images, and Collapsible Reflectors are great for that. The fact that Profoto offer ten different Collapsible Reflectors in six fabrics (black, white, silver, sunsilver, gold and translucent) would be helpful, as that allowed us to create different light characters and moods by simply replacing one Collapsible Reflector with another.
 
That was the plan. But as it turned, the forces of nature refused to cooperate."

Read the entire article on the Profoto Blog.

Dogwood Park Fountain, Cookeville, TN
Site vistor Mark J. sent us a great tip – Microsoft has a freely downloadable program for producing GIFs, called Microsoft Research Cliplets.
 
After learning about the program, I simply had to try it. I went to the local park to capture a video of its fountain in action (shown above).
 
Check out the video below to see how it works.
