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!

What do you do when a senior wants an EPIC portrait with his telescope? You bring in killer lighting from Interfit Photographic and turn day into night. This was shot at 11am and will be an instant favorite of Logan and his parents.

Cutting Edge Photography is making memories with Amanda Jensen at Cutting Edge Photography.

Amanda Jensen • Kingsford High School • Class of 2018

Sometimes, you just have to postpone a session to make it that much better. Yesterday's wind/rain caused us to move Amanda's session to today. Good move! The weather was gorgeous and Amanda looked beautiful in every pose. Our soccer star from Kingsford is now ready to dominate her Senior year. #Photography #photographer #upperpeninsulaphotographer #kingsford #soccer #flowers #field #sun #senior #seniorpictures #seniorportraits

Senior Friday! Yesterday, Sydney had a fun afternoon to show off her cool style. From her electric smile to her fun props, we braved the winds and created magic. This State Air Rifle Champion and cello player is artsy, yet a top notch marksman with an air rifle in her hands. #Photography #photographer #upperpeninsulaphotographer #senior #seniorpictures #seniorportraits #marksman #gun #cello #airrifle #statechampion

Beautiful senior with great colors makes for an eye popping portrait.

Ranging from the golf course to the pretty fields, she looked stunning in everything she tried on.

Long live the King! That is what was shouted out during Will's senior portrait session by one of his loyal subjects who was driving by. 😀 Our IMHS Soccer Captain and really nice guy loved every minute of his session. We had a lot of laughs, conversations about soccer and his future, and photography in general. Not only can the girls look great, but the guys can look like models as well. #Photography #photographer #upperpeninsulaphotographer #senior #seniorpictures #soccer #imhs #longlivetheking

Fireworks in the winter? Why not! Yesterday, we had Mitch Barron from Gladstone Area High School come in for Senior Portraits. Not only were we able to create some beautiful senior portraits for his parents, but went off the rails with some cool portraits that incorporated his passion - building fireworks. No people, small animals or props were injured in the making of his portraits. We did have a "blast" though. #Senior2017 #gladstone #fireworks #LightItAndRun

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.

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

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.

Options of Savage Seamless Paper Backgrounds at Cutting Edge Photography
Options of Savage Seamless Paper Backgrounds at Cutting Edge Photography

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.
