Night shoot with Jessica V at my friend Rick Head's digs. (aka Simi Studios.) I assisted Rick for the stuff he shot, Rick assisted me for mine. Used the old beat-up Ford pickup in Rick's backyard for a prop. It was freakin' cold! Poor Jess, goosebumps and turning blue. But she was a trooper, enduring the frigid (by SoCal standards) temperatures and worse... my bad jokes.
Test drove the ExplorerXT
for my power source. Very satisfied with its performance! I recommend! It's about the same price as AB's Vagabond. I've never used Buff's porta-power gear so I can't compare. But the ExplorerXT (and its Aux Power battery) performed like a champ! Powered 2 Novatron monolights with no noticeable slow-down of recycle times. Fun shooting in a different style than my usual--slightly editorial-ish.
