Do you like the outdoors? Do you like high-speed military guns and gear? Do you like good photography? How about something that combines all three with a naturalistic style?
If you answered yes to those questions, then you should check out the work of John Reitter, The Airsoft Strobist. John (not Johan) is a young man in Austria who’s combined his love of the outdoors, guns, airsoft and photography and come up with some truly excellent results.
By the way, a “strobist” in photography lingo is a person who uses small, hot-shoe mountable electronic flashguns, off-camera to enhance the lighting quality of his photos. The off-camera flashgun is triggered by the camera using a sync cable or a wireless switch.
One of my favorite shots is this one of an airsofter in Austria with a complete load-out in the Singaporan Armed Forces new digital camouflage. Not only is it a studio-quality shot set against a great background, but its also the fact that this guy managed to get himself a complete set up in a really uncommon pattern – and in a size big enough to fit him! Kudos.
Or how about this one of a CADPAT clad skirmisher?
While this one just makes me want to raise my fist in the air and yell “WOLVERINES!”
Or how about something completely different?
