Two days sounds like a lot of time to take someone’s portrait, but in reality it’s not that much time and the idea is to keep things simple but interesting. So I try to keep my kit light and practical. My camera for most trips is my Canon 5D Mk III. Since I am always on the go, all of the lenses are packed in my Thinktank Pro Speed Belt v2.0
and one of the coolest accessories in my kit is the Orbis
. The Orbis is a softbox, beauty dish and ring flash all in one that uses a speedlight flash as a light source.
The images above and for most of the article are created with the Orbis.
This is a behind the scenes of a set I did for a fashion shoot. Orbis direct on flash used as a normal ring flash over the lens.
