Many thanks to Marisa Gertz for her terrific piece on Art Streiber and his Star Wars–themed cover shoot for Wired, published today on the Profoto blog.

“If you ever need to shoot a theater full of Stormtroopers,” she writes in the introduction, “you know who to call: Art Streiber, master of crazy lighting setups and shoots so complicated they’d make most of us cry. For Wired’s March 2013 issue, Art shot a bevy of Star Wars denizens, including R2D2, Chewbacca, and Darth Vader in some unconventional ways.”

“It was a very long day, with no pre-light, so EVERYTHING had to work right the first time,” Art tells Marisa. “And all of our Profoto gear rose to the occasion… I’ve been using Profoto for more than 15 years on every job. It’s my go-to source for strobe equipment.”

The story also features behind-the-scenes photos, like the one above. Read it here: “Art Streiber: Star Wars Is Back!”
