The popular photography blog FStoppers recently featured a behind the scenes video by CEB Imagery photographer C. Edward Brice of a dance powder shoot.
While many behind the scenes videos are merely “music videos of the photographer shooting,” CEB Imagery’s video includes a large amount of detailed and technical info on the shoot and doesn’t shy away from showing mistakes (and how to get past them).
The resulting images show a strong sense of movement and are somewhat ethereal in feeling. They were shot using three 580EX II’s and triggered by PocketWizard MiniTT1’s and FlexTT5’s.
Check out the video above, the post on FStoppers, and more of CEB Imagery’s work. Connect with CEB Imagery on 500px, and Flickr.

Here’s a great behind-the-scenes video by photographer Lou Jones documenting a shoot he did with a group of dancers. Taking place in Cary Wolinsky’s Trillium Studio in Norwell, Massachusetts, this video is a dream for gear heads. Jones lists all the equipment he used and on-screen text gives you the names.
You can see more of Lou Jones’ videos on Vimeo, and don’t miss his blog. The banner shot of his blog currently features an image taken at the Dance session.
