So through all the connections I’ve made in the last year+, and all the hockey I’ve been shooting, I went for something a little bit different a few weekends ago. I had recently purchased two AB1600s (along with two 32″x40″ softboxes) and was excited to try them out. Through one of those previously mentioned contacts, I traded some gear for a game-worn USA jersey from 2008, complete with the IIHF logos and patches. A sweet jersey, to say the least.
So for this image I wanted to use my giant 5-foot by 9-foot American Flag that I found at an antique store in South Beloit over the summer. I already have a project ready for that flag, but more on that in a future post. I just wanted a still-life shot of the jersey and the flag; nothing fancy. The details on the shot are below:
Camera: Canon 7D
Lens: Canon 35mm f/1.4L
Shutter speed: 1/250
I used my PocketWizard mini TT1 to trigger one AB1600 with a 32″x40″ softbox attached. I believe the softbox was about 5 feet away from the subjects, and somewhere around 1/4 power.
