stroboscopic self portrait, stroboscopic photography

Stroboscopic photography consists of a flashing strobe light and a camera with an open shutter (bulb position). Stroboscopic photos must be taken in darkness and with black background so that everytime the strobe flashes, a still image is taken of a moving object at that instant.

This specific photo was shot with 30 seconds bulb exposure and three flashes. 30 seconds was enough time to change the hats, although this was done in absolute darkness. Two assistants with flash units on the left and the right were used.

This is a portrait of the painter Konstantinos Kapetanopoulos. On the background you can see his paintings.

The following image was published in the Greek photography magazine Φωτογράφος, February 2008, Issue 170, p.41 following the Nude and glamour photography seminar organized by Φωτογράφος, and conducted by fashion photographer Stephanos Paschos (Στέφανος Πάσχος). In my opinion there were better photographs in my portfolio than this one. I will post some more in the near future.
