I was recently interviewed for the PocketWizard blog, and the story just posted today! You can read it here (http://blog.pocketwizard.com/?p=3150).
The point of this article was to show how I use a monopod to mount a flash fired by a PocketWizard. This way I can custom light people with full control, and can move the light and adapt as the model moves. The point of great photography is to always light someone in a custom way that makes them look good. Most people just light the person in a general way. By having my light mobile, I can constantly move and adapt to get great lighting as the client moves.
For my non-photographer followers, PocketWizard makes devices that sync your flashes to fire when your camera fires. Normally you’d have to wire them all to your camera, but with these radio syncs, a wireless signal is sent instead. This allows for wireless shooting which means putting your flashes anywhere, and not just where a wire will reach.
The brand new PocketWizard Flex and Mini systems have been improved to allow for E-TTL, meaning that they have electronics inside that compute how to fire a flash multiple times in a shot, and in just the right way so that you can use a flash with cameras that in higher sync speeds than normal. This means you can get the look of overpowering the sun with a small and lightweight setup.
These devices are amazing and I have loved them. And I really appreciate PocketWizard calling and interviewing me about them too.
Well thanks for looking and remember, that it’s the best time right now to do family portraits in the garden studio here at Bry Cox Studio. The place looks fantastic and the weather is perfect. Call now to schedule something soon. I have some specials going on right now too, which is an added bonus to getting a Bry Cox portrait right now.
