In the shot above I used a single 400Ws flash pack and head. I fitted a 28cm high efficiency reflector and lit my model from a distance of five metres. The pack was an Elinchrom Quadra and it was flat out on full power. Full length pictures require more flash power than close ups because the light has to cover a wider area.
Here are my steps to producing repeatable results on sunny f/16 days using manual control flash.
