Sometimes, half the fun of having gear with extreme capabilities is purposely pushing it to the absolute limit. This fun video follows a photographer as he shoots at a crazy aperture in heavy daylight with flash.
Coming to you from Manny Ortiz, this video shows him shooting at an ultra-wide aperture and using high-speed sync to combine it with flash. In the video, Ortiz is using the Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95, an insanely wide lens. Of course, the problem with shooting that wide during the middle of the day is that the amount of light the lens will let in is very high, and that makes it impossible to use normal flash without resorting to ND filters. Ortiz uses the Godox AD200, which allows him to take advantage of high-speed sync, but even then, he absolutely maxes out his settings, shooting at ISO 50 and 1/8,000 s with the strobe at full power to get the proper exposure with the flash and ambient light balanced. Nonetheless, the results are worth the effort, as he gets some very unique and interesting shots. If you're someone who likes to push gear to its limits, you'll definitely enjoy the video and the results he gets.
