The famous lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret chose Paris and DP Darius Khondji, AFC, ASC, to shoot their Christmas advertising campaign. 6 Alphas 18K have been supplied by Panalux France for this shooting.

Gaffer Thierry Baucheron explains : “I chose the Alphas 18K because I only had 4 meters available from the large windows that we had to light up, and with the Fresnel lens in flood mode, I knew that I was able to cover them completely.
I always use the Alphas because for their ability to work pointing straight down, which is a real advantage. On top of this, they are compact and well designed for end users. The spigots on the yoke to hold frames are really handy. I have just worked with the small Alpha 1600 and it perfectly completes the range. Congratulations !”.
