I went to Iceland in September 2016 and connected again with an old Icelandic friend. Having visited the usual tourist hot spots on this trip, I immediately accepted her invitation to participate in a 5 day wilderness adventure to a seldom-trodden trail in the interior of Iceland.

The hike, 44 miles circumambulating the remote Langisjór glacial lake, was accessible only with a 6 hour drive in a 4x4. Our group of 20 was made up of all sorts of Icelanders and I picked one of them to photograph at the very end of our hike. The beautiful Briet, who looked remarkable after 4 nights sleeping in a tent, on moss. We found a spot that showed some of the glacial run-off and the majesty of the area. In the distance you can just about make-out the outlines of the Vatnajökull Glacier, one of Europe’s largest ice sheets.

I wanted to convey how light the ELB-400 really is. Coupled with a small Deep Dish Rotalux, a straw colored color correction gel, I used a superclamp to attach the light to a hiking pole and asked one of my new friends to hold the light. I used my trusty Nikon D810 with 24-700mm lens.

The key to making a shot like this work is to subtly add light and definition. Using the new Sekonic L-478DR-U-EL Litemaster Pro enabled me to get the exact mix of ambient and artificial light, resulting in a well-lit image that still looks totally natural.

I’ve been searching for years for the perfect location lighting kit. The ELB-400, Action Head, Rotalux and Sekonic Meter combination have been the answer to my prayers.

    Elinchrom Skyport Transmitter Pro for Nikon

    EL19367

    The Elinchrom Skyport Transmitter Pro for Nikon represents the latest evolution in Elinchrom's venerable wireless ecosystem. It combines compatibility with three generations of transceivers and flash heads with cutting edge features like Hi-Sync flash sync speeds up to 1/8000 sec two way visual feedback and TTL with Manual Lock.

    Two Way Visual Feedback Interface
    The large LCD display of the Skyport HS features two-way control via a Visual Feedback Interface that lets you see the exact power of every light in your setup right on the transmitter. The individual strobes show up automatically on the screen, and users can control each light's power level and modeling lamp settings directly from the Skyport transmitter or on the strobe itself, which instantly shows the updated power settings.

    Hi-Sync and HSS
    Go beyond the X-Sync of your camera with two different flash synchronisation technologies; Hi-Synch and HSS. Hi-Sync is optimised for power and while HSS is easier to use and more consistent. The Transmitter Pro uniquely integrates both Hi-Sync and HSS so photographers can simply access sync speeds up to 1/8000s to freeze motion, overpower the sun, darken backgrounds, or use a wider aperture for a shallow depth of field.

    Hi-Sync is only achievable with Hi-Sync enabled flash heads and the Transmitter Pro must be used in manual mode while HSS only works with TTL enabled units with the Transmitter pro in either manual or TTL mode.
    Note: both technologies may be used simultaneously when the Transmitter Pro is in manual mode. (ex. ELB 1200 with Hi-Sync + ELB 500 TTL with HSS)

    Impressive Wireless Range
    The Skyport Transmitter Pro has 20 channels and 4 groups that can be used for either Normal or Speed mode, and a wireless range of 656' outdoors and 196' indoors. Users can instantly distinguish what sync mode they are in since the backlit display glows green for normal sync mode, and red for speed sync mode.

    Compatibility
    The Skyport Transmitter Pro is compatible with previous generations of Elinchrom flash units including the EL- Skyport Transceiver RX module for Style RX, Digital RX, and Ranger RX systems and the integrated EL-Skyport modules for the BRX, D-Lite RX, ELC Pro HD, and ELB series. The Skyport Transmitter Pro adds synchronization capability and two-way control functionality to all Elinchrom lights with EL-Skyport capability.

    User Updatable Firmware
    Designed to be a future proof, users can update the firmware of the Transmitter Pro via included mini usb cable. Current Skyport Plus HS owners can update to full Pro functionality via a free firmware update on Elinchrom.com

    Indirect Litemotiv Octa 190cm / 75"

    EL28000

    The Octa is ideal when using the reflection method of light distribution and as a result the Octa does give remarkably even illumination over the front cloth. Consequently, it can be used very close to the subject giving particularly soft results. For crisp beauty shots with higher contrast, the external diffuser can be removed.

    The Indirect Litemotiv includes the tilthead, 360° rotating system, internal & external diffusers and carrying bag, already pre-mounted.
