No, that's a flash in my basement (nee "studio") with some Atmosphere Aerosol to create the haze. :)

So how did you set it up? Settings?


Godox AD360 on a light stand (standard "kit" diffuser attached).
(I forget the power setting on the flash, but it was pretty low like 1/64.)
Godox N1 radio trigger on the camera.
Nikon radio trigger to activate the shutter.
Used my roll of gaffer's tape to mark the spot for me to stand.
Put another light stand on that location to allow me to focus correctly, then lock lens into manual focus.
Move the "model" out of the way.
Stand over the marker.
Spray some atmosphere between me and the flash.
Trigger a series of shots using the radio trigger in my hand.

50mm / ƒ/16 / 1/60s / ISO 64

colossal !!

And on top of everything else you own your own cowboy hat :o

(On reflection, probably not so unusual.  America.  Cowboys. I'll do the math, as they say ;) )

Fantastically atmospheric photograph.  Thanks for the explanation of your methodology.
