I’ve had an exciting month. I got to meet one of my oldest blogger friends for the first time in person and I got to test drive some brand-new remote flash triggers from Phottix Photography Accessories before they hit the market. Somebody pinch me, please.
Steve Peer, CEO of Phottix Photography Accessories, managed to pop over to Taiwan to attend a photography workshop hosted by Craig Ferguson at First Zoom Studios in Taipei. Craig invited about a dozen photographers to come and test out the new Phottix Atlas Wireless Flash Triggers, which were formally announced on the Phottix web site earlier this month.
Professional reviews of the Atlas can be found on Strobist.
Ny two cents worth? I thought the triggers worked really well, especially when you consider that we were shooting in a bomb shelter behind several walls of thick cement, but I hope my images speak for themselves.
A quick note about Steve:
We’ve known each other since January 2007, when we launched our blogs within weeks of each other. Steve has been a staunch supporter of My Several Worlds and , and out of all the travel bloggers and photographers that I’ve come to know online over the past three years, Steve is one blogger that I’ve been dying to meet. And, just as I expected, he is as nice in person as he is online.
Thanks for coming, Steve. It was a pleasure to test out the Phottix Atlas, but the real icing on the cake was getting to meet you in person!
Here are a few of my favorite photos from the shoot. There’s lots more to see on my Flickr photostream!
