Interfit S1 Moonlight with HSS Review by David Hakamaki, Cr.Photog.

I recently received several AC/DC powered S1 strobes from Interfit Photographic. This is a studio strobe that looks and acts very similar to the pro photo B1. Although the pro photo be ones are stellar strobes, they can put a significant dent into your bank account. The Interfit S one costs about 1/2 to 1/3 of the pro photo equivalent and specs out relatively the same.

The Interfit S1 is a TTL strobe with high-speed sync. It provides 10 stops of power range, with three of those stops at the upper end available for high-speed sync. High-speed sync operates in manual Mode and can accommodate shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second. Adjustments are made in 1/10 stop increments, allowing for an amazing array of adjustments.

Looking at the Interfit S1, it looks very similar to the Profoto B1. The S1 provides 500 Watt/Seconds of power and uses removable and exchangeable lithium ion battery that is flush with the body, offering around 350 full power flashes. There is an integrated wireless system, using a corresponding Interfit remote, that provides TTL flash exposure compensation and manual power control for Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras.

Construction is very durable aluminum with a Bowens S-type mount for a large array of rings and modifiers, such as soft boxes, reflectors, and other attachments. The S one weighs 6.3 pounds and operates on either AC or DC mode. Battery recharge time is approximately three hours and is charge separately, so the strobe can be used in AC mode while the battery is charging. There is an AC only model called the S1a, which is virtually identical to the S1.

A review in the field will be published shortly, which will show off the Interfit S1 in action.  Photos of behind-the-scenes, as well as final captures will be included to assist with understanding what the S1 can do on location.  A final review will go in depth on the high speed sync (HSS) features of the S1 and new opportunities for amazing photography.  Stay tuned for these upcoming reviews.

Overall, this unit is simply powerful and filled with conveniences.  The S1 unit retails for around $749 on Interfit’s and other major retailer websites.  However, you can save an additional 10% by purchasing directly from the Interfit Photographic website (www.interfitphotographic.com) and enter code Hakamaki10.  Happy shooting!

Robby Rigoni • Kingsford High School • Class of 2017

Robby Rigoni from Kingsford High School was in for his fall senior portraits. Our resident bowhunter and gun hunter brought in the full arsenal to make his session special. Even the truck got into a few shots, which rounded out this session perfectly. #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #hunting #bowhunting #archery #weatherby #ford #truck #fallcolors #Kingsford

More beautiful fall portraits, this time with Matt Nachos Peterson, from Norway High School. Our football player and outdoor lover was at home with the fall colors. He was a blast to talk with and his session was fast, amazing and fun. Good luck in the Playoffs, Matt and the rest of the Knights! #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #athlete #fallcolors #football #Norway #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #ROCKSTAR

Fall colors and smiles! That's what this day was all about. Ashley Anderson was bright and cheery during her ROCKSTAR Senior portrait session. Our volleyballer from Stephenson High School brought her game face, but was all smiles during the rest of the day. Just pure beauty on this day! #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #volleyball #fallcolors #Stephenson #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #ROCKSTAR

His other portraits really brought out his personality and showed how much he loves the outdoors. #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #hunting #fallcolors #Kingsford #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #ROCKSTAR

Today the weather cooperated for our afternoon session with Cole Quick from Kingsford High School. The sun popped out and created an amazing backdrop of fall colors during our foray into our outdoor studio. We even got the chance to get several amazing bowhunting portraits for Cole. You'll just have to wait for his gallery to see the rest.

Cutting Edge Photography making memories with Trisha Grassman Peterson at Cutting Edge Photography.

Not only do we specialize in creating amazing senior portraits, but families also get the special treatment. Instead of plain family portraits, the Peterson Family wanted something unique. We went to Piers Gorge and created several stunning portraits, including this breathtaking long exposure portrait. Yes, even the dogs cooperated by staying still. This goes beyond the ordinary and into extraordinary. Look for this on their wall soon! #cuttingedgephotography #FamilyPortraits #athlete #fallcolors #PiersGorge #waterfall #upperpeninsulaphotographer

Michelle Abramson, from Iron Mountain Public Schools, was in for her ROCKSTAR Senior Portraits. With an absolutely gorgeous fall day filled with colors was the perfect backdrop for this stunning senior. The final stop was to show off her involvement on IMHS' bowling team. Too many amazing image to choose from. I think a book is in her future! #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #athlete #fallcolors #bowling #IMHS #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #ROCKSTAR

Our baseball star for Kingsford High School, Guy Barrows, was in for fall Senior Portraits. Killing it in the studio with his baseball portraits, he got into full fall mode with the hunting outfits and shotgun in our outdoor studio. Showing his patriotism with the gun made for a memorable photo that is indicative of the UP. #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #athlete #hunting #baseball #Kingsford #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #ROCKSTAR

Quite honored to not only have the massive support from friends and clients in the Iron Mountain area, but the opportunity to give back to the amazing photographers in Tallahassee and New Orleans and help their photography business grow. Yes, YOUR images will be tagging along with me and shown at these two events!

Our head Cheerleader from Iron Mountain Public Schools, Nicole Mielcarek, had so much fun on her last session, she wanted more. This time, fall was our choice of backgrounds and the fall colors & weather totally cooperated. Hitting Mountaineer Stadium for Cheer portraits, as well as the gorgeous scenic locations around the area, created a treasure trove of fantastic fall portraits for Nicole. #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #athlete #cheerleader #CompetitiveCheer #IMHS #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #ROCKSTAR Sue Koski Mielcarek

Love when our Seniors want a variety of images, rather than the same thing everyone else is getting. Sara Borvan, our Volleyball and Basketball ace from North Dickinson High School, thrilled us with her varied styles and clothing options. We got to see gorgeous smiles, seriously cool attitudes and sheer beauty. She was gushing over everything we did. Variety.

Dustin Westphal, our beast of a Tight End and Linebacker from Wausaukee High, was another athlete who wanted some seriously magazine style senior portraits. With the look he gave us during the football and baseball portraits, I don't know anyone who would want to go up against him. However, when the smile came on, you could tell he was a really nice guy. Awesome stuff! #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #athlete #football #baseball #Wausaukee #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #WisconsinSeniors #ROCKSTAR

Senior Portraits with our local Sports stars are fun. Today, we beat the rain during Garrett O'Neil's Senior Portrait Session and created some amazing images. Our North Dickinson High School QB, basketball point guard and track star got to show off both his sporty and cool side during his session. Love it when we get the athletes looking for something amazing and we blow them away. Score. #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #athlete #football #basketball #track #NorthDickinson #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #ROCKSTAR Vicki Johnson

Double trouble Seniors today! We had both Taylor Saari and Britni Lakkala come in for a dual session of senior portraits. Two times the seniors made for two times the fun and laughs. The sun was shining and their smiles were sparkling, which made for a long, but really fun session. Tons of locations were visited and an amazing number of stunning portraits were captured from these lovely ladies. Best Saturday in a long time. #doubleduty #SeniorPortraits #Ontonagon #EwenTroutCreek #Seniors2017 #CrushedIt

Hunter Lenczuk • Pembine High School • Class of 2017

Beautiful day for Senior Portraits with Hunter from Beecher-Dunbar-Pembine Schools. Hunter's personality was in full power and with the cool locations we went to, it will be nearly impossible to pick out a favorite. #ROCKSTAR #Seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #SeniorPhotographer #Soccer #Football #Pembine #Musician #Sax Stephanie Lenczuk

Rain and illness could not ruin a wedding day. In fact, these small glitches only will make it a more interesting story for their kids and grandkids. Even though rain would have ruined most wedding porratis, we embraced the weather and got creative to create a unique and amazing wedding gallery. Just thinking outside the box allowed us to make @[502050782:2048:Megan] & @[599829902:2048:Kaleb]'s wedding day.......perfect. #wedding #love #upperpeininsulaweddingphotographer #rain #weddingphotographer #nothingcanruintheirday

Donielle Kube • Kingsford High School • Class of 2017

Amazing Senior Portrait session yesterday with the beautiful Donielle Kube from Kingsford High School. Donielle always has a smile on her face and photographing her was like being with a model. She is so exuberant when taking her portraits and it was a blast watching the reaction of her and her Mom when they saw the images on the iPad. I think we have a new record for hearing, "No, this is now my favorite." Loved every second of this session. #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #smile #Kingsford #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #ROCKSTAR Doni Marie

Love. This was the theme of Laura and Corey's wedding. It wasn't just a word, but you could feel it in the air. No matter where we were, you could feel the joy and love in both of our gorgeous couple. From their first look to the last dance of the evening, the smiles were shining bright and their kisses passionate. Their gallery of images is just the start of a long love story. #wedding #weddingday #weddingphotography #upperpeninsulaweddingphotographers #love #kisses #bride

Jacob Brown • Sheboygan North High School • Class of 2017

Athletes always want to look amazing in their Senior Portraits. Yesterday, we went on location and into the studio to create some outstanding portraits with our Sheboygan North High School Swim Team and Sheboygan North Cross Country star, Jacob Brown. Jacob was great to talk with during his session and we found he will go far in life with his determination and attention to detail. #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #athlete #crosscountry #swimming #swimmer #Sheboygan #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #gettingathletesfromallover #ROCKSTAR Heidi Pontbriand Brown

Hannah Carlson • Kingsford High School • Class of 2017

Beautiful senior + Beautiful day = Beautiful Senior Portraits. This math is easy, isn't it? We had a gorgeous summer day for Senior Portraits with our Volleyball, Basketball and Soccer star from Kingsford High School, Hannah Carlson. She was radiant all day and that smile was shining bright all day long. It was effortless to get tons of amazing senior portraits with Hannah, since she looked stunning all day long. We can't wait for her fall session to complete a perfect senior session. #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #athlete #basketball #volleyball #soccer #Kingsford #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #ROCKSTAR Mary A.

Beauty and talent. That is Samantha Lutz from Ontonagon High School. She is a fierce competitor on the volleyball court, basketball court or golf course, but always seems has a smile on her face. Her smile made the day even brighter and her personality was amazing. Sam was elegant and stunning wherever we went and will be the envy of all her friends. #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #athlete #basketball #volleyball #golf #Ontonagon #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #ROCKSTAR Bonnie Lutz

Confident. That is our superstar basketball player and golfer, Ben Strong, from Houghton High School. Even though the weather was hot, we had tons of laughs, brilliant smiles and a senior with tons of personality during his ROCKSTAR Senior Portrait session yesterday. We love when athletes from across the UP come for unique senior portraits. There were so many great images to choose from, this sneak peek will just have to do for now. Several of these images will definitely be displayed at photo conferences across the country in the near future! #cuttingedgephotography #seniors2017 #SeniorPortraits #athlete #basketball #golf #Houghton #upperpeninsulaphotographer #upseniors #ROCKSTAR Meredith Strong

Taylor Curtis • L.D. Bell High School • Class of 2017

Senior Portraits on Lake Superior are always a blast! Taylor Curtis has been visiting from Texas and wanted amazing senior portraits in Marquette. Well, it is easy to say she totally nailed AMAZING! Our future nurse was bright and bubbly, while still able to bring out her serious side to create some breathtaking portraits. Needless to say, they are in trouble when they have to decide which of the images will be their favorite (or favorites). Maybe we'll let them have double digit faves?? #lakesuperior #marquette #Seniors2017 #seniorportraits #cuttingedgephotography #nurse #ROCKSTAR

Variety in Studio Makes You a Better Photographer by David Hakamaki

Are you stuck in a rut? Do you keep working the same background or keep getting the same results?  Why not try and diversify your background options and include a wide variety of Savage Universal seamless background papers?  These darlings come in four sizes, 26” x 36’, 53” x 36’, 107” x 36’, and 107” x 150’. Select colors are also available in 86” x 36’ and 140” x 105’.  Thus, even the smallest studio can accommodate a number of background papers.

I run a full-time home based studio, with my camera room in a converted bedroom, so space is limited.  By having a variety of Savage seamless background papers, no matter what my subject comes in wearing, I can delight them with a background that brings out their fashion and style.  A recent studio session with my daughter, Lara, allowed us to run through 5 different backgrounds.  I told her to throw together some outfits that would be found in a fashion magazine and, WOW, did she challenge me.

Her first outfit and makeup job had a variety of colors to try and coordinate.  This gave us the chance to pull three different seamless papers and work a number of poses on this outfit.  The colors we used were True Blue, Crimson and Studio Blue.  Without a variety of papers to choose from, we would have been stuck either (1) using a color that didn’t match or (2) limited to only one color.  Needless to say, three seamless paper colors gave us a wide series of images from one outfit.

Her next outfit was a purple number that is very hard to match.  However, using our Orchid seamless paper, and adjusting the background light, we were able to create a perfect complimenting purple to Lara’s outfit and makeup.  This color is striking to the eye and can be brightened or darkened by raising or lowering the light directed upon it.

Finally, she went the more traditional and elegant route by donning a cute navy and white striped dress, along with matching handbag and plush coat.  This was an easy choice for one of my “go to” seamless papers – Ultramarine.  This rich blue can dive to the deepest navy tones or into a nice medium blue, again by varying background light intensity.  This background is an easy choice as a complimentary or contrasting color.  It works for so many colors and styles, which is why it always sits ready to pull.

So, if you want to vary your options or expand what your studio can do with your subjects, add a wider variety of seamless paper backgrounds to your arsenal.  You, and your subjects, will love the results.
