Let There be Light!

My studio mate does lots of liquid shots and needs super fast flash duration in order to freeze motion. So he bought these Ascor "Sun" strobes. I think they were made to light up the ground from an airplane for spy photos.....Or something like that. Super mad scientist stuff! I could have used these for a shoot I had the other day, but locating a sync cord was a problem. I wonder why? These strobes were made in the 60's

What I do like the most though is the sound of 12,000 watt seconds.....very scary. Reminds me of my days at Francesco Scavullo's getting yelled at. Ahh the good ole days. Hear for yourself not the yelling, but the sound of the strobes.

Anything that makes a sound like that "es muy macho!"
