This ad kind of summarizes my season from the start in November 2009 to the finish in July of 2010. It was a long season for me as I did extend it a little with the shoot at the Sammy Carlson Invitational in July at Windell’s Camp at Timberline, Oregon.
The highlight of this ad for me is the shot of Dane Tudor during the Sammy Carlson Invitational, right side, middle photo. It was my first experience with the Pocket Wizard FlexTT5′s for Nikon and things worked out well, very well, better than I had expected. I had just gotten the beta versions of the FlexTT5′s for Nikon and hadn’t had much time to really play with them so I was a bit worried to try them out but I gave them a go. The weather dealt us a full house that evening with the low clouds streaming in the valley from the west leaving an epic view with the low cloud layer and the sunset light. To top it off my first day testing the Pocket Wizard FlexTT5′s for Nikon turned out great. I had manual hypersync to two Elinchrom Ranger RX AS Speed strobes at 1/1000 sec. with partial coverage (all I wanted to light was the top half of the frame where the skier would be) at over 600 feet.
I’m really happy with how the Scott ad campaign came out this season and that I got to be a part of it last season. I’m looking forward to doing it again this season.
