Again, off to Phoenix today. I timed it well: 70s in Phoenix, and freezing here.
I am looking forward to the workshop in which I will be joined by David Honl, who is flying in from LA with an assistant. Participants can look forward to some really cool flash training!
Packing is a challenge. My “Classified” bag is full of gear, but I am not bringing some items I really would have liked: the 70-200 lens and the 100mm macro. I am bringing:
- 1D Mark IV
- Three speedlites
- Three pocketwizards
- 24-70 2.8L
- 16-35 2.8L
- 35mm f/1.4
- 50mm f/1.4
- Power Supplies fro both cameras
- Spare batteries
- Spare memory cards
- Flash modifiers (Honl speedstraps, gobos, gels, snoots, grids, etc)
This is par for the course, but with the new restrictions we will see how this plays out. I would hate to have to check $20,000 worth of equipment. CATSA have confirmed I should be fine – we’ll see.
Tip: bring a vest and worst case, put lots of stuff into the vest.
