In the Bag: Mamiya Phase One IQ140 digital back on 645DF camera body; Schneider Kreuznach lenses (55mm, 80mm, 110mm); Manfrotto 055CXPRO4 tripod with mag ball head; homemade light banks with daylight balanced CFL tubes. "With a strobe, subjects tend to freeze up, but with continuous light, they get used to it," Dash says. "Images shot with the Schneider lenses look more filmlike and have great depth of field, just the right mix I wanted for this project."
