Strobist Jet Pack
Aug 18, 2008

Here’s a quick little video I did for an online photography contest. Hopefully we’ll win some schwag from PocketWizard and Strobist.com.

Matt Hoplin liked this idea and photoshopped me a few extra strobes for good measure.  Matt says:  “I see where you’re going and its just crazy enough that it just might work.  The only problem is you haven’t taken it far enough.  Hence I give you: the human ring flash.  This is the entry level model. The full version I’m building has 250 WS strobes in flash boxes powered by the gas powered electric generator mounted to the back pack. Weighs in at a couple hundred pounds and  9 of them at the lowest setting require a stack of neutral density filters but it’s totally worth it to get those circles in the model’s eyes.”

    Great idea!!!
    Instead of steel rod I would use fishing rod. Buy some cheap telescopic rod, remove last one or 2 elements and use only tougher parts. It will be lighter, more portable, probably also stronger in terms of vibrations and you can adjust length according to your needs.
