                                                            Full Throttle Small Kit, Big Results from JOAOCARLOSMEDIA on Vimeo.

When a friend of yours for over twenty  years calls you up and says he has a new ride and would love some pictures of it, you wake up early to get the beauty of early morning sunshine and get that perfect combination of natural light and  flash at sunrise .

 I was also excited about being able to experiment with the wi-fi capabilities of the X-T1 -
 We mounted the  XT-1 and  a  XF 14mm f/2.8 lens with a magic arm as if it were an action camera to the handle bars of the motorbike. This was an awesome perspective: the results have a dramatic, high impact  advertising feel and the file quality is superb on the XT-1 so I could go a little more crazy on the editing.

Another cool selfie taken from a distance. The Fujifilm Camera Remote app gives me full camera control

The Wi-fi connection was very fast, clocking in at about under a minute.

The tilt screen  on the XT-1 makes it easy to get these super low-angles, creating a more dramatic visual

The Profoto B2 off camera flash is a great  option for pretty much any on location shoot

  The B2 250 Air TTL Power Pack weighs only  2.2 lb with its Lithion -Ion battery and each  head only  weighs 1.5 lbs – 
 The B2 boasts super fast  recycling times and  There is a Freeze Mode that allows   me to stop the action even if  the subject is moving at hi speeds .I used  bare bulb on one B2 head the other was mounted with a set of barn doors , I love this raw light perfect for the dramatic affect .

 When you combine B2 and X-T1 it’s a super small kit that allows for huge results .
