Air Profoto

No, not Profoto's proprietary Air-sync remote system. But rather photographer Claes Axstål's using twin 7b's with Magnum reflectors to shoot air-to-air photos of planes in flight. Just a little 2400 watt-second Friday fun, courtesy Ron Egatz on the RSS-worthy Profoto blog.

Having lit aircraft in flight while shooting from the ground using only a few low-power speedlights, I'd love to see a combination of the two techniques. After all, Axstål is certainly driving enough power to set off some slaved interior lights, too…
