New Pocket Wizard Test
Although we typically rent lights and other gear for our film and photo productions, in December we thought we would try simplifying the set-up and take a few test shots with only a speedlight, umbrella, and soft gold disc, thereby establishing a quick light set-up to have around the studio. Because the Mini and Flex have hot shoe mounts, a wireless scenario is a breeze without any sync cords from Pocket Wizard to a speedlight. Additionally, the TTL connectivity is helpful if necessary, but we stuck in manual mode.
Our lovely friend Cristie had been speaking with us about doing a few shots to get her book started and we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to try out the little set-up. We shot in the basement of our office building and got a couple of cool shots. It was a good experiment in breaking away from tons of gear(although convenient and powerful) and making it work with one small light and some reflection. Looking forward to creating more images with this set-up and to see the quality evolve as we figure out a few bugs.
