Remote setup

Some of you have asked to see how the glass cameras were set up and how they are actuated. In a nutshell, the camera is mounted with a Bogen Magic Arm and fired with a Pocket Wizard Multimax transceiver. The Multimax is configured to sync remotely with the strobes. Each strobe is configured in its own zone (A, B, C, D). With this setup, it gives us control from the ground level as to which light or combination of lights we want to fire. The photos below illustrate the camera setup.

The black shield below the lens is called a gobo. This prevents light from ghosting/reflecting back into the camera.

Works like a charm ;-)
