Shizzam! It’s the Pocket Wizard!

I am shooting my first wedding tomorrow, so naturally I had to get hooked up with the Pocket Wizard Plus AKA “the world’s most reliable remote triggering system” (up to 1600 ft away). I know. Uber Cool.

Shizzam! That’s the noise it makes when it fires: Shizzam!!

Here are some shots of me and the Rebel and the 580 & 430Exs


getting to know and love the wizard and the magical things he can do.

Don’t you want a Pocket Wizard now?
So much.
Am I getting paid to promote the Pocket Wizard? No.
Should I? Definitely.

Dear Pocket Wizard,

Please sponsor me in my pursuit to become an uber photog. If you sponsor me or donate monies into my sad shell of a bank account, I will shamelessly promote your product until the masses speak your name in their sleep… P-Wizzz. zzz. must buy. must have. more more more.

Lisa Bettany.

    Cool little device you’ve got there… though not very sleek. You look gorgeous BTW.

    It looks like you’re having too much fun, probably put you on a watch list south of your border. Ron.

    Yay for Pocket Wizards (that’s how i found your blog btw)… Got mine today. We should all get paid by Pocket Wizards for telling other people how grand they are. And by Apple (oh I would be so rich!)
