HALCO ROOSTER POPPER 2021 CATALOGUE PROMOTION IMAGE
What was originally planned as images for the 2021 Halco Tackle Trade Show Displays, ended up being catalogue images due to the worldwide Covid pandemic. Bit of a disappointment as this and other images to follow later would have looked sensational as huge wall sized prints. Anyway, this and others can be seen in the new online catalogue on Halco’s website.
The Halco Rooster Popper has a huge cup face that creates a great pop and an even better bubble trail. A few trial runs on getting the right diving angle helped slow it down a bit and the rest is up to the flash system to freeze the action and your trigger finger on the remote.
For this I used a deep vertical tank, three light setup, black reflector and all the lights off in the studio, only relying on the modelling light on the Godox AD600 Pro for some visual light. Triggering the shot took the collaboration of a Godox X-Pro and a Nikon WR-10, plus hand eye co-ordination to get the popper and bubble trail in the shot.
