Zach Bolinger and Eight Doctors

Photographer Zach Bolinger was recently on assignment to shoot a group of surgeons celebrating the 40th anniversary of their practice. To quickly get eight doctors in and out of the session, he relied on his new PocketWizard radio triggers. Similar to the daily practice of doctors, Bolinger didn’t know what he’d encounter, and hadn’t used this particular setup before. You can read the full story on his blog.

When contacted about his post, Bolinger wrote us the following.

“For this project I wanted to try using the PocketWizard FlexTT5 and MiniTT1 with the AC3 Zone Controller. They worked flawlessly. Being able to control the flashes from my camera was a real time saver, especially with one Flex unit on a boom that could only be reached with a ladder. I divided the lights in two groups, Group A in the front and Group B behind the plexiglass. With the AC3 Zone Controller I could dial in the different sets of lights. This was my first time really testing the units and I was impressed on the ease of use. No cords or clutter and the time saved running back and forth to adjust the flashes was priceless. Physicians have very little time to wait around, so the ease of getting eight physicians done in a short amount of time was nice.”

Equipment used: two FlexTT5 units, MiniTT1, AC3 Zone Contoller, Nikon D3, 24-70mm zoom f/2.8 lens, two Nikon SB-900 AF Speedlight units and four Nikon SB-800 AF Speedlight units.

Nice job, Zach! To see more of Zach Bolinger’s photography, visit his site.
