We previously covered the Tutu Project event in New York City, which was to be held on March 22nd. Due to a family matter, the event was postponed, and will now be held on May 3 and 4.
Last September we released our short film about photographer Bob Carey and his personal endeavor called “The Tutu Project.” Using PocketWizard technology, Bob employed remote camera triggering to take self-portraits of himself in a pink tutu. With his wife Linda undergoing chemotherapy treatments, she and her fellow patients enjoyed the photos. This led to The Tutu Project and the creation of the Carey Foundation to support women undergoing breast cancer treatment.
The series has proved incredibly popular, with media coverage from CNN, The Today Show, the BBC, and countless other media outlets. Last fall Bob photographed himself and survivors at a series of halftime events at NFL games.
PocketWizard is proud to announce it is co-sponsoring an event to celebrate the Tutu Project’s first anniversary. The event will be held at The Lab NYC, 122 West 26th Street, New York City, on Friday, May 3rd and Saturday, May 4th, 2013.
Join host Joe Brady for this seminar on controlling studio portrait lighting with the new PocketWizard Plus III radio. Learn the benefits of shooting with your flashes on full manual power. During our live shoot, we’ll use both speedlights and studio monolights. But more important than just discussing photography gear, we’re going to explore how and why to use this equipment to capture the image you’re after.
We all know that photography is about light. The new PocketWizard Plus III radio triggers we’re going to put to use will allow us to direct light where we need it and make it easy to control, right from the top of the camera.
We’re going to take full control of our lights for studio shoots. That means full manual control – no TTL flash. No more guessing, no constant exposure adjustments, no hours at the computer fixing your images. If you are after consistent, professional results in controlled settings, learn how manual control is the way to go!
Sadly, the Mark Wallace Meetup Tour is coming to a close. It’s been a long trip, and Mark has met many of you in many places. We were glad to be along for the ride, and thank Mark for an amazing experience. And check out YOUR work on Flickr – cool!
And the winner is – LAS VEGAS! You voted, now Mark is coming to you.
