Good Horse Sense
Columbia, SC-based photojournalist Brett Flashnick (Brett, tell us you didn’t make that name up!) knows you can’t get too close to a horse during a race, lest the thoroughbred take a chunk out of your head with his hooves. So, like many photographers, Brett uses Pocket Wizards to trigger the cameras from a safe distance. “When the race began,” says Brett, “I decided to shoot from down the track with my 300mm f/2.8 and 1.4x converter, with the PocketWizard on the hot shoe of the camera, so I could have two angles of the shot, in case the remote didn’t work for some reason. Once the event is done with, you can go back to your remote, and collect your images and hope you got what you envisioned.” Nice work, indeed.
Congratulations, Brett! Link
