Chris Garrison recently created some outstanding environmental portraits of Pat Panakos, the mastermind behind the Projects wake park. His blog post features some of the images, meta data, gear list, a useful lighting diagram, and a great video. Chris used PocketWizard Plus III Transceivers and the PocketWizard PowerST4 Receiver for Elinchrom RX.
PetaPixel has run a fun story about Chase Jarvis getting an outrageous dream to come true. Using PocketWizard Plus II radio triggers, Jarvis got Samsung to sponsor his dream shoot of floating amid a group of colored clouds. Using a Canon 7D, Canon 5D Mark III, Nikon D4, Sony FS700, nine GoPros, a gang of technicians, and goggles, Jarvis was soon able to appear suspended before multicolored clouds worthy of any children’s book. Watch the behind-the-scenes video to see how the shot was put together.
