Has anyone done portraits with the becquerel method?
I was wondering if it was possible to use the sane method chuck close does, a series of lamps brighter than the sun in a flash. Is it possible, with the slow nature of becquerels, to make portraits at reasonable times without this mad-scientist style lighting? Like under 30 seconds in bright sun? I have got an f4.5 so please no “yes, with the $20,000 zeiss flioflapzach f0.97 Lens you will have no problem” I would really like to make portraits, though, with becquerel, I think they are so beautiful on dags.
Yes it’s possible to make portraits without flash as well, but you will need to have a good model, and something to hold here head. Here is 2 example for Becquerel dag, in camera exposure. I used just the sun for lighting. I can’t remember for the exposure time.
I will soon be attempting a Becquerel dag, but with over 10,000 ws of strobe power. I want to attempt a 15 second exposure with two to three full power pops on the strobe…in your opinion might that work?
