The Magic Flash
"It all started with shoeboxes and a flashlight".
One thing quickly became clear to René Staud: With the light available at the time, cars simply could not be photographed properly and stage. "More than was a documentary hardly possible. Emotional photography unthinkable”. – René Staud remembers a time when surface spotlight maximum one square meters were large. It is clear to him: "In order to figure out all the details of a
work is required large, even light". That's why tinkers René Staud around in the studio at home until his first lightning tub is ready for use: The Magicflash® was born. With tubs of one length up to nine meters and a width of up to three meters, the impossible is suddenly possible: the perfect one illumination. "The differences in the photographs were so striking that I switched from one to the other could hardly save another day from orders."
