Good afternoon!

I have finally achieved a good portrait with studio strobe : here the Broncolor Pulso G 3200J. I was so surprised by the UV power delivered that the final RAW was overexposed...

Gear : Canon 6D FS + Nikon EL 105mm + Kolari UV filter
EXIF : 105mm, F/5.6, 1600iso, 1/100s.

I am pretty sure I could have reached F/8 and 800iso in this configuration. The focus is not perfect, but for the first test I am happy with this result. I will do better the next time ;).

You are going to give poor Marko a sunburn! Nice pic.

Yet another tedious reminder from Mom --- Be very careful with UV lights and people's eyes. Thank you.

Excellent portraiture. The hand print is way cool!

They already exist! Google.
However, you are still supposed to wear sunglasses even with UV-block contact lenses because they don't cover all the eye. "-(

Don't worry Andrea, I am the first concerned by UV safety. Here the amount of UV light is negligible compared with the visible light emitted by the flash. The use of a large diffuser helped to offer a large emission of UV light contrary to a focused source.
