No way to really meter for the arcing as it tends to vary... lets just say it's BRIGHT. Looking into the arc is a recipe for eye damage so I never do... I always have the camera in front of my face once the welding starts and I have a dialog with the welder. I tend to line things up and then say GO! I then shut my eyes and shoot. After a bit of practice it really works well. I do a lot of welding photography for lokal industry and they seem to like itNathan, just curious, do you need to wear protective eye gear when photographing them or are you turned away when the welding starts?
I imagine it took some experimenting to get the exposure right for the arcs and flash together? Can you meter the arcing?
Welcome in Nikonland Nathan ! You really nail it !
Thanks Hulyss Not regretting the switch one bit so far! Wish the Nikon flashes had radio built in, but with the profoto B2 I can work lighter and with more power than speed lights when I don't want to lug the full size portfolio heads on location... but still.. radio on speed lights would be very nice.. Apart from that its all positive!
