A Quick Portrait – Testing the new Elinchrom D-Lite RX One

I have been testing a new set of studio strobes, the Elinchrom D-Lite RX One kit. This quick set was taken for my good friend Daniel, a guitarist and singer with whom I established an instant friendship with when we met years ago. Dan has always impressed me with his tenacity and persistence in pursuit of artistic freedom, and this quick shoot arose from a small opportunity to help an old friend as he moves back to London in search of gigs and work. I haven’t worked with more than one light in the past, and adding a second strobe as a rim light is opening my mind up to many more stylistic concepts to explore. Exciting days ahead!
