ProPhoto Coalition Shares High Flying HyperSync Results
When photographer Tony Donaldson set out to test PocketWizard’s HyperSync technology on the PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 with his Nikon D800, he focused on the two things most important to him: “freezing action and being able to create good light even in crappy, midday sunlight.”
For that, he enlisted the help of gymnast Anna Clols and a trampoline. He was able to overpower the sun and freeze motion (even her hair!) while shooting at 1/2500th. Next, he went to a nearby park where he was able to get beautiful light, even at midday, and a shallow depth of field at 1/1250th.
“Having the versatility to make light bend to my will is absolutely amazing. The PocketWizard Mini and Flex worked flawlessly for the whole shoot. Being able to make well-lit pictures at times of the day when the sun is harsh but not caring is invaluable. There will always be times when this comes in handy, and being well practiced in it and knowing how to do it when it counts adds versatility and makes me look like a hero to my clients.”
