Preview: Drummer DJ Swanson


Quick preview of drummer and friend DJ Swanson from a promotional shoot we did recently. You may recall DJ from the shoot with his band Interplause.

I took the opportunity to test out the new Pocketwizard ControlTL units for Nikon on this shoot – the Pocketwizard FlexTT5 and Pocketwizard MiniTT1.


Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3

Lenses Used:

Lighting Equipment Used:

We did it up in a style Joe McNally would have been proud of – or at the very least, we used more than two remote speedlights for this. All in all, a total of 5 speedlights – my entire arsenal – went into these shots.

Stay tuned for the full set of images and the precise shooting notes, as well as a few behind-the-scenes snaps. Oh, and did I mention that I'll be diagramming the lighting setups for these shots, too?

Simply clicking through either B&H or here for your purchases helps me bring you free content like these 6-tips for the new concert photographer, and naturally it doesn't cost you a cent more. If you do grab some gear, drop me a line! I’d love to hear about what you picked up.
