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.

  • Indirect Litemotiv Octa 190cm / 75"

    $1,420.00More infoAdd to cart

    Indirect Litemotiv Octa 190cm / 75"


    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.
