Professionally Lighting Climbers On A Sheer Ice Wall Basically Guarantees Amazing Photos


The project, called Ice Nights, was shot using three flash units powered by Broncolor Move 1200 L‘s on a Phase One IQ180 digital back with 645DF body. The crew set up throughout the day, placing flashes above and below the ice and positioning themselves on ropes for maximum control of the side lighting on the climbers, Alex Luger and Hanno Schluge. When it got dark they lit everything up and started climbing/shooting.

Oh, you know, just an average day on the ice wall. [PetaPixel]
