[BTS Video] This Drummer Is On Fire!

Photographer Sasha Leahovcenco was featured on the Profoto Blog a few days back for his BTS video of him shooting his long time drumer pal, Mike Johnston that included lighting Mike's drumsticks on fire. The outcome is pretty great, I'm a fan. Enjoy!

Sasha's lighting gear includes the Profoto D4 Head powered by an Acute2R 2400 shot into the Profoto 5' Octa

Does anyone know of another option besides the LED wash lights that aren't $800? Would love to use them for music videos.

Cool idea! Its always nice to see people thinking a bit outside the box. Inspiring!

thanks Carlos

Awesomeeeeeeeee :) 

Great lighting and idea. I'm not sure about the model and/or pose though. 

Fire is such an extreme thing to work with, so having a person that is all but extreme (both in terms of style and pose) clashes in a way. 

Fire, to me, is rock & roll, adrenaline and all that, while this guy looks way to nice and gentle.
