Making Waves, 6 September 2013

making_waves_logoMaking Waves is a weekly round-up of current posts featuring PocketWizard products.

Justin Van Leeuwen of JVL Photography in Ottawa, Ontario has a great blog post up about his third year shooting the Cole family. This year’s shoot took place at their summer cottage. Electronic technology and water typically are not to be mixed, but that didn’t stop Van Leeuwen from doing his best to capture each of eight family members, plus their dog, while balancing a large octa on a floating raft.

Van Leeuwen utilized a MiniTT1, FlexTT5 and HyperSync® speeds to make this deceptively fun shot that definitely presented challenges to execute. He’s a Westcott-endorsed Pro and lens reviewer for We hope to explore more of his work in-depth in the future.

It’s always good to have a standard operating procedure to fall back on. Mark Wallace’s Go-To Lighting Setup triggered using Plus® III radios can be yours. You can also see the video on YouTube.


John Flury creates a surreal, conceptual photo using “Zone Lighting” and Plus III radios. This one is titled “Seamstress of Her Own Destiny.” The original article on the shoot appeared here.
