Off to Phoenix

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
  • 7D
  • Three speedlites
  • Three pocketwizards
  • 24-70 2.8L
  • 16-35 2.8L
  • 35mm f/1.4
  • 50mm f/1.4
  • Laptop
  • Power Supplies fro both cameras
  • Spare batteries
  • Spare memory cards
  • Cables
  • 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.
