Mark Wallace: On Location with PocketWizard

We’re excited to be working with Mark Wallace from SnapFactory. Our collaboration will bring some great educational tutorials from a great educator, who also is a working pro photographer. Details and the finished tutorials are forthcoming. But…until the finished tutorials are ready, here is a sneak-peek of what’s coming:

Quoth the Mark:

I’ve been shooting a bunch of tutorial videos for PocketWizard over the last three weeks. while we were on location I wanted to give a very quick overview of one of the setups. Here’s a quick one minute video that shows how easy it is to use the new Mini and Flex.

You can see exactly what the flashes are doing by looking at the shot that was taken with Ab, our cameraman, in the shot. The background was much brighter than the foreground and the flashes really make the shot.

  1. great vid on how to effectively use small strobes for a great result in an outdoor shoot.

    poor video on the function of the new PWs… no ETTL mentioned or anything — not very strobist in detail… as far as you could tell, you could have used the old PWs for this shoot

  2. it’s very strange, that we read all thos blog-entries of photographers working with the new pw’s – but in reality no one is able to use them properly, because they just don’t work.
    just found this thread on which summarizes my experience:
    there are other threads as well, and they do all have in common, what you can read at the end:
    nobody is satisfied, they just don’t work.
    altogether I must say, that it was a very disappointing experience. And I don’t think it is acceptable that your customers sit on units,that they cannot use at all.

  3. Greg and Peter:
