Pocket Wizard Hypersync Gymnastics

January 3, 2011 The last photoshoot of 2010 is over and done, it’s a wrap! Back in December of 2010 while I was teaching my action photography class at Van Arts I had the pleasure of working with a couple of gymnast girls at the Phoenix Gym in Vancouver.

The Details: This was shot at 1/500 f5 with a Nikon D2Xs. I used 2 Nikon SB800’s set to manual 1/2 power and mounted on a single stand. I can’t remember exactly what the zoom was set at but I…
