Setup 1:

Two Canon 580 EXII Flashes (Manual) with PocketWizard FlexTT5 and Hanson Fong Skin Glow on light stands, metered with Sekonic L-758DR. Canon 5D Mark II, 70-200mm L lens f4 with PocketWizard MiniTT1.  ETTL channel 19, Classic Channel 3

"I wanted to shoot the model over the topiary at about 35 feet away with my Canon 580EX II units. The flash units were on manual and metered at f/11 @ 125. One light was behind to light up her hair and separate her from the background, and one light was off to the left and high to illuminate her face." - Hanson Fong



Setup 2:

One Canon 580 EXII Flash with PocketWizard FlexTT5 on a boom. Canon 5D Mark II, 70-200mm L lens f4 with PocketWizard MiniTT1. The exposure was 5.6 @ 125.

"We often shoot people walking at a wedding – and being able to have one flash on a stick with E-TTL as the main flash is a huge bonus, and makes my life easy. It’s fast, fun and easy – plus simple to set up and use.  Perfect exposures."- Hanson Fong
