Profoto Light kit passes Hagen test with flying colors

profoto-port_110.jpgNikonians Academy director Mike Hagen recently proved the reliability of the Profoto D1 Studio Kit by taking it straight to an important shoot two hours after he unpacked it for the first time.

Mike’s adventure resulted in a successful series of images and a Profoto D1 Studio Kit Review, now available in our Resources at Nikonians® pages

Profoto_lt_220.jpg The hands-on review shows the flexibility of the Profoto D1 Studio Kit when handled under some challenging conditions.

The background for this particular session, a fundraising event at a museum, consisted of a brushed metal surface, which most photographers might have avoided. Mike used that shiny surface to his advantage, and the Profoto kit delivered.

Mike’s on the spot appraisal:

“The shots from the fundraiser turned out very well. My initial fears were unfounded, which is a true testament to the ease of operation and overall quality of the Profoto equipment.

The equipment performed flawlessly and allowed me to focus on my job – taking photos. There wasn’t a single glitch or failure in hundreds and hundreds of shots. The Profoto gear was reliable, consistent, and excellent.”

Check out the full review for more sample images and details on how Mike arranged his lighting.
