Whilst photographing the food for Boundary Mill, I was also asked to photograph the chefs. As I’d elected to road test the ELB1200 during the food shoot, I felt the environmental portraits of the chefs would make a good contrast to the food imagery.
I was lucky to be given early access to the Elinchrom ELB1200, and I wanted a number of shoots with various themes. Basically, to test the flexibility and capabilities of the unit.
The delivered box seemed much heavier than I had expected. Being LED, I had assumed it would have similar weight characteristics to the LED panels I had handled.
