VIDEO: Hidden Light Sources and Radio Triggers

At a wedding in Newport Beach, California, a couple with a flair for the dramatic planned for their first dance to be under an outdoor rotunda, overlooking the landscape below. How to get the shot?

The team at Lin and Jirsa Photography tries a couple of different options, but end up hiding a speedlight behind one of the columns of the rotunda. Using a PocketWizard Plus® III allowed all of their second shooters to trigger the same speedlight from different locations, meaning they ended up with a variety of types of shots from the same, simple setup.

Check out the post on SLR Lounge for more info, including the final images and lighting diagram. See more of Lin and Jirsa’s photography on their site.
