Going to extremes in Belgium

Catching up on some blog reading I landed on the Confessions of a Photographer blog written Belgian professional photographer and euro-strobist Bert Stephani. Over the weekend just gone Bert was asked to help out at a Canon Belgium event called EOS Discovery, which was apparently a pretty cool event.

Being faced with most of the full set of Canon wares Bert decided to make a special kind of portrait with the mega Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM lens and an off camera Speedlite triggered with a Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2. Must have been a pretty big studio as close focus on that lens is 6 meters according to Canon's site.

You can see Bert's extreme portrait shot on his flickr account.

Bert also posted some cool portrait shots with the EOS 50D and a 50mm lens in this post on his blog.

What's your most extreme picture or bit of kit?
