World Record Set For Most Flashes Used In One Picture: 300

This world record, confirmed by Guinness (they know of such things), is even more impressive to me, seeing as I can’t even get single flash unit to work properly. These guys synced up three hundred flashes to light a picture at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. The picture above shows the setup, but I believe that’s just the portrait for the record page. If they set the record just taking a picture of themselves setting the record, that would be ridiculous.

More is forthcoming, including some behind-the-scenes stuff on how to power and sync such a ridiculous number of strobes.
