The Interrupting Shiba

with 6 comments

I often set up impromptu portrait sessions with the wife so she can record the funky outfits she puts together. This is a very simple  set up, with a single Canon 600EX on a light stand shooting through an umbrella.

We’re triggering the flash with Pocket Wizards, and the transmitting unit is hotshoe’d to a brand new Panasonic GX7 I’m testing. This camera’s mechanical shutter has a native sync speed of 1/320th. Pretty handy for shooting flash portraits outdoors with your aperture wide open, in this case at f/0.95.

It wasn’t long, however, until Suki decided to walk in on our little shoot:

So as not to offend the Suki, I made sure she got a solo portrait of her own 🙂

  5. Hi Jonathan!

    I have been trying to use my Pocket Wizard Mini TT1 with the GX7 but with no luck. How did you make it work?

    • Hi! It’s been a while since I did this shoot, but I’m pretty sure I was using Plus III units for this shoot. I’m not sure about compatibility with the Mini TT1.
