Roswell, New Mexico, September 15th… Going Wireless Contest: 2nd Winner
Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, It’s True
A photographer was seen walking down the street with a backpack. Clamped on to the backpack were various pipes, more clamps and an umbrella. Into the umbrella there was a small strobe, triggered by a PocketWizard. Jesse Rosten, the photographer, had cobbled the idea together just to win the 2nd monthly PW video contest. And he won!
Congratulations, Jesse. The ingenious rig enabled him to hand hold camera and light, a la Strobist, anywhere he walked. Just amazing. You can see his other talents (director, motion graphics designer and still photographer) on his web site at www.jesserosten.com and blog. The amazing thing is there are hundreds of photographers from Roswell, New Mexico, using the same lighting setup. One even has eight strobes and umbrellas mounted in a circle! And, he’s getting on a spaceship.
