The studio that you wear – all made possible with wireless triggering. This is my submission to the Pocket Wizard Strobist Competition.

GizmoBitz says:

this video is so clear, even at 360p. how did you export it, using which program?

Danijel Šimić says:

impresiv…, great idea.. thx for sharing

PoesKlap133 says:

Pocket wizards are the best but fucking ridiculously over priced for strobism! Fong Kong triggers work perfectly!

This has made my day, lol.
It’s so classic, near classy, loving it!!!
It’s a crazy set-up, but logical and it works great!

joaoacioli says:

Did you try aluminum hollow rods instead of steel? It should make the set up a bit lighter… you could also put a portable weight on the opposite side. It would be more weigt but would give you more balance… ; )

Jimmyphoto says:

Good idea and love that you see the nerdy ness of it.

bodaciousbetties says:

Very handy when you have no photo assistant. Love it, especially the nerd aspect. Whatever gets great photos!

DeportesMargaritaTV says:

floling says:

the only lack is the ambience light (f.e. sky or the sun from behind someone) thats what in my opinion makes the good outdoor strobe pictures….

smirkypants says:

I’m so very embarrassed for you.

Danijel Šimić says:

Hilfred Siebrits says:

Cool idea, and I’m not sure if you should have made such a joke about it? Something like this could be produced commercially.
