A new PocketWizard video shot on location in Las Vegas has been released. Featuring photographer and educator Kevin Kubota, this session with a model was done on a rooftop with speedlights fired by the new PocketWizard Plus III radio triggers.
With an octagon softbox housing two speedlights, Kubota used a total of three Plus III transceivers to light the entire shoot. During this shoot, his first one using the Plus III, he covers zone control, ease of use, and reliability.
“I love the fact they’re so easy to use I didn’t have to get out the manual to figure it out. The controls are great,” he says. “They’re lightweight and really affordable, so it’s a great option if you’re just getting started, or if you’ve been doing it awhile like me, this simplifies your life.”

Photographer Kevin Kubota has posted an account of a very cool photo shoot he recently completed.
First off, Kubota stresses the good things which can happen when you shoot with a photography buddy. In this case, it’s his friend Benjamin Edwards. He details how the two shooters collaborated by taking turns setting up shots of the bride and groom, Jenah and Matt. Mutual feedback was critical to getting the best shots, and a great lesson can be learned from this paragraph of Kubota’s post alone.
The theme for this photo shoot was fairly easy to arrive at. Jenah, it turns out, is “a national team boxer.” What better idea than to put her in a ring, wearing a bridal gown, and have her knocking out her groom? Awesome concept, and great execution, guys.
