This is bizzare. I shot with Shannon a few months ago and had to end the shoot early because my Norman powerpack started smokin and making loud popping sounds. The Norman was ok, but it took a few months to get Shannon back for a second shoot. After some incredible outdoor shots, we decided to do some nude images to submit to Playboy. She stripped down to her panties when suddenly it sounded like a driveby shooting! I turned around and my powerpack was on fire and sounded like fireworks!

My 25 year old Norman is officially fried ... and will live out the remainder of it's days as a boat anchor. Go figure ... 25 years of service and it blows up twice ... in front of the same model!

Anywayz ... here are a few of the pre-fire images!

with that kind of track record, my superstitious nature says not to shoot with her again... as painful as that may be. things like this happen in threes. now that the powerpack is retired something else will have to burn. you've heard of spontaneous combustion, right? next time, it could be you going up in flames.

as a consolation, you can always send her my way.

The answer is simple. Based on my 50 plus years of photography, she's just too 'hot' for your old Norman.

UPDATE: I weighed the value of getting a new AB 800 or replacing my burned-out Norman pack. Ultimately it was an easy decision -- replace the powerpack for $350 (used) and get to use my four working strobe heads again ... or get the AB 800 and have one additional head.. I decided that four heads is better than one! The new pack seems to work fine ... I'll post images from last night shortly.

Nice photos and nice model! My experiences with "hot power packs" has been the result of working on a studio floor surface that is not hard and smooth... which is necessary to allow cooling air flow beneath the pack. Even the relatively smooth commerical carpeting can do that.

To solve the problem, my location studio includes a piece of 1/4 " thick aluminum sheet at least 6" larger than the pack footprint. By placing it under the power pack whenever the floor is not hard and smooth that allows good airflow and also the aluminum helps conduct heat away from the pack.

This overheating happens primarily with rapid shooting, like when you get all excited about the shoot. Actually, that it happened twice with the same model is a very nice compliment about the model... REALLY hot!
