ELB400 IN A TRIP TO INDONESIA
The ELB400 , your best friend for a trip to Indonesia
Elinchrom’s philosophy is to manufacture equipment that corresponds to each photographer’s needs. This makes Elinchrom’s equipment very user-friendly and reliable.
For this on-location shoot, I used the ELB 400, a strong, robust and portable battery pack. I went to Sulawesi, in Indonesia to shoot portraits and different cultural sceneries.
I need an equipment that is strong, reliable, small, lightweight and weather resistant, and that is why I choose the ELB 400 pack.To carry everything i use a F-Stup Tilopa. My flash and FujiFilm equipment fits in Perfect.

Simple flash setup for dramatic lightning
The advantages of flash
n Indonesia, sunrise and sunset only take half an hour. The light can quickly become hard, so you’ll need an artificial light to fight against the high contrast and color bleeding.
Boring sky, no problem, with flash it gets dramtic
We organised another shoot in traditional clothing. I wanted to showcase the beauty of landscape with the model featured in a costumed dress. I used the flash to underexpose the background and obtain more contrast and colour in the sky. I’m very fond of this set up, with a wide angle lens.
During my trip, I was able to make almost every kind of picture possible. The ELB is such a compact and small unit, that it was very convenient during this trip.
