VIDEO: Hidden Light Sources and Radio Triggers

At a wedding in Newport Beach, California, a couple with a flair for the dramatic planned for their first dance to be under an outdoor rotunda, overlooking the landscape below. How to get the shot?

The team at Lin and Jirsa Photography tries a couple of different options, but end up hiding a speedlight behind one of the columns of the rotunda. Using a PocketWizard Plus® III allowed all of their second shooters to trigger the same speedlight from different locations, meaning they ended up with a variety of types of shots from the same, simple setup.

Check out the post on SLR Lounge for more info, including the final images and lighting diagram. See more of Lin and Jirsa’s photography on their site.

Mixing Light with Lin and Jirsa

Wedding photographer duo Lin & Jirsa have a new post up on SLR Lounge, showing you how they got a dramatic shot of a couple in a wine room.

The post shows you the shot both before and after they added lighting, so you can really see just how much it added to the atmosphere and mood of the final photo. In the lighting diagram you can see that they used two strobes, triggered by two PocketWizard Plus® II radios, outside the room and behind the subject and one tungsten video light in front. The contrasting color temperatures from the mixed light sources, in addition to the fisheye lens, give the photo style to spare.

For details, check out the post on SLR Lounge. See more photos from the shoot on Lin & Jirsa.
