The PowerSnoot is a chrome-plated long snoot with a honeycomb grid that allows you to achieve dramatic studio lighting effects using your flash. When used off camera, the PowerSnoot is a lightweight and cable free alternative to traditional cumbersome studio lighting equipment. When used on camera, the PowerSnoot gives you loads of power (an additional 2 stops) to light a subject at a distance, and get a hot spot light effect.
The spot light effect enables you to light your subject better and give you control over the background light, even on a bright sunny day. Due to the intensified directional lighting, you can also use the PowerSnoot for sport or wildlife photography with a telephoto lens. The suggested retail price is R799, making it a cheap alternative to the studio equipment equivalent. I recently had a chance to try out something fun that I had been meaning to do for sometime.  I setup a bowl of water and a strobe and tried my hand at capturing the effects of water dropping into a large white pasta bowl.
The setup for this is actually pretty basic.  A large bowl of water filled close to the top, camera on a tripod with a remote or cable release, a studio strobe or off camera flash.


The real trick is to realize that the shutter speed of the camera is not what captures the image of the water frozen but the extremely short duration of the flash.  A studio strobe (I used a AlienBee Einstein unit) or off camera flash when set to a low power has a very short flash duration and that is what will capture the image seen above. Try other variations as to where the camera is in relation to the bowl, use different items to create different sized water drops, and experiment with the image of the room that is captured in the large drops.
But how to you take the dissonance between (daytime) programming and (nighttime) car-havoc-ing? Ben set his mind on using the sparks coming out of an angle grinder as a compositional element tying all the shots together.
Here are are the rest of the photos taken at that day, head up to Ben’s blog to see Ryan during his normal, boring office hours as well as a complete lighting breakdown.
To see more of his work please visit his studio website blurMEDIAphotography, or follow him on Twitter, 500px, Google Plus or YouTube.
Stefan Kohler is a conceptual photographer, specialized in mixing science, technology and photography. When he isn't waking up at 4am to take photos of nature, he stays awake until 4am taking photos of the night skies or time lapses. Instead of filling the room with light, the PowerSnoot gives more directional control, and produces spectacular theatrical lighting.


I recommend this product for any photographer who is looking to expand their lighting set up on a budget.
When he is back from America I will put him in touch with Tristan from Tandum Focus, they have so many wonderful products!
Photographer Benjamin Von Wong spent a night in a car shop with Ryan, a LeMons car, some angle grinders a bunch of Broncolor strobes and a Mamiya Leaf to show that excitement. Aside the usual challenges, if you can call shooting a LeMons car wit an angle grinder usual, Ben was dealing with the need to freeze the fire and sparks while using a super bright Broncolor strobe.
This is a 100% crop sample the shows the definition and stop action you get with using such high end gear. Keep it at and one day you’ll find yourself shooting things you had never imagined possible.
