Jaleel King Rolls with PocketWizards
Photographer Jaleel King has been using a wheelchair since he was eight years old, but that hasn’t stopped him from pursuing his photography. Over at Strobist, David Hobby reached out to him for some details on his innovative rig.
In short, Jaleel has built a mobile studio setup by bolting an AB800, power pack, and boom right onto his chair. “After a bout with a (not surprisingly) problematic wired-sync setup,” David writes, “he moved to the PocketWizard FlexTT5 platform, with its ability to remotely control power levels on the AB800. That remote control ability has been a lifesaver.”
