Ever wondered what it felt like to fly?
Tristan and his team pulled another crazy stunt in Turkey and turned air into their own playground in a unique photoshoot.


The French adventure photographer, Tristan Shu, tells us about his latest paragliding photoshoot with the ELB 1200.

"We keep innovating.

And it’s only the beginning!"

 

You specialize in adventure photography. After all you’ve accomplished, how do you manage to go even further in this field?

When we tried these paragliding photo shoots, it was like opening a Pandora’s box. The more we shot, the more ideas came to our minds. What seemed impossible to realize a while ago, started becoming easier with experience and training; so we kept innovating. And it’s only the beginning! There are so many beautiful places sculpted by Mother Earth that I’d like to photograph, and where I’d love to fly.

I’m also surrounded by an incredible team, friends who help me produce incredible images and have pushed me to become even more creative. The tools at our disposal also get better! Just like the new Elinchrom battery pack. Elinchrom - February 2017 Press Release / ELB 1200 / Under Embargo Until February 27, 2017 - 11:00 am UTC 6 With the ELB 1200 we could finally realise the impossible within the adventure photography field. For this project, we could recreate an astonishing photographic studio outdoor, with a paraglider, a base jumper, and a wingsuit.

Tell us the story behind the base jump image.

We had a lot of ideas around this project. We wanted to obtain the best images but also create a BTS video of this whole adventure, and we started wondering what action, figure or scene could be the most original. We quickly all agreed that the base jump image would bring a new dimension to the audience. It took us a few trials to arrive at the end result. We needed a perfect synchronization between the whole crew, and with training and a bit of luck we got the perfect shot!

For the whole week, I kept thinking that we needed more preparation time. On the base jump photograph, when I triggered, I remember thinking that Guillaume Galvani (the base jumper) was almost too close to me. If I wanted to, I could have given him a high-five. In the end, it was perfect!

 

"These moments were magical"

 

This tension at take off when everyone knew exactly what they were supposed to do; the few minutes before taking the shot with complete and utter silence, and the moment when Guillaume flew by, a moment of pure magic with a magnificent sunset in the background. A very short but infinite moment, as if time had stopped.

Why was the ELB 1200 the unit you needed for this project?

In this context, so many elements have to work together at the right time, and in the right place. You need to have a flash equipment that you can rely on to obtain unbelievable photographs. With the ELB 1200, the game has changed.

 

"We can now literally create our own studio outdoor..."

 

...play with light like never before, use the unit during complex photoshoots, all of which with an incredible ease of use.

Lightweightness and ergonomy are the first features you notice when using the unit. We can also control power at a certain distance, which turned out to be remarkably practical to change our settings whilst flying!

The ELB 1200 also gives you a feeling of reliability and robustness, something that I’ve always admired in Elinchrom units.

During your photoshoot, you forget that you are carrying a battery pack. The ELB 1200 provides all the flexibility and reliability you need, and allows you to concentrate all your energy and attention on other elements of the shooting, to make sure your experience is a success.

It is so easy to use that any photographer delving into the world of flash photography will be able to master it without a tedious learning curve.
