[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am playing with the Profoto B1 battery powered strobe. This tool is so versatile that you can take it anywhere with a soft box and create photos that are studio quality.

A light like this with a soft box and a stand (in this case converted tripod legs) can give a studio appearance to almost any photo.

Hi Roger,
The light is soft and reveals the dog's fur in a flattering way.
I only wish you had avoided that glare on the frame at the left side, because it would be easier to notice the joke.
What a vain dog :)

Boa tarde Roger,
It's fantastic! Great lightness, clarity and amazing depth.

Pretty impressive, Roger, I guess it would be a super aid in your line of photography,no wires to worry about neither, but I should imagine it comes with a high price tag for us amateurs.


bonjour Roger
Perfect balance light, I imagine that in good hands this material can do miracles
And your hands are the best one as much as your eyes

So nice and very well composed. I like a lot this dog too, "French bulldog"...
