I was recently on set at the Rivington Hotel in NYC using the PocketWizard MiniTT1, FlexTT5 and AC3 ControlTL system. Taming the vast amount of sunlight could first be seen as an obstacle, yet using the PocketWizard ControlTL system, I was able to control the light to my advantage and use it to create some gorgeous photographs. The ability to control the three lights on set directly from my camera using the AC3 with the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 let me effortlessly switch settings on each one guaranteeing the right exposure, making my shoot flow smoothly and allowing me to focus on being creative.

With the shot on the floor, I really decided to do a lot of everything and the AC3 unit, by setting the lights myself, allows me to do wide shots, and real close ups without moving my equipment around. It’s all about being fluid and maintaining that connection between the subject and the photographer. The units are so small and so unobtrusive that we were able to do so many shots within one set without moving a lot of stuff around or equipment getting in the way.
