A for real fresnel light from wayback. Ever since I heard about them I wanted to try one. I found local photographer who has three (3) in their basement!
A quick word, a quick loan and wow.. I can’t wait to try it more.
A quick disclaimer - this was not a posed shot, just wanted to see the light. It was HOT as in ouch, the model was getting a tan and couldn’t look directly into the light cuz it was so bright. I literally hung it from a step ladder about 15 feet back and plugged in the modified plug into my GFI.
Took the shot, wanted to do another, made a slight adjustment and POP! There went my GFI. The modified wiring isn’t properly grounded I found out. So it will be safe to reset the switch and shoot again as long as I don’t touch it it won’t trip again. I will be shooting with it again very soon.
Oh and I bumped the contrast a little so it’s not “straight out of the camera” like I usually do. Just sayin… Enjoy!
