Johannesburg-based photographer Ben Bergh is doing some incredible work with PocketWizard technology taken where it’s not supposed to go. He’s published a great post on his blog about a pool shoot he did, with stunning results. Ben used PocketWizard FlexTT5 Transceivers inside plastic Tupperware on this shoot. We look forward to doing a larger feature on Ben in the near future, but please don’t try this with your own PocketWizard radio triggers. They weren’t meant for water! Learn more about Ben at his siteblog and on Facebook.

Photographer Mark Shannon has been experimenting on a tabletop. He’s posted some gorgeous images and a detailed gear breakdown on Henry’s Blog. Check it out to see how he froze water in part with PocketWizard Plus® II radio triggers. The Plus II has been replaced by the Plus® III. This is proof a modest set-up can yield seriously professional results.

Mark reports he’s currently working on a review of the PocketWizard PlusX, and will be publishing shortly. Stay tuned! Mark is Community Manager at Henry’s Cameras. You can follow him on Twitter, along with Henry’s.
