  • A wireless microphone, as the name implies, is a microphone without a physical cable connecting it directly to the sound recording or amplifying equipment with which it is associated.
  • A microphone with an FM radio transmitter inside of its case that transmits a signal to an FM receiver off of the stage area.
  • A system that transmits audio signals over the air, rather than through microphone cables. The mic is attached to a small transmitter, and the signals are received by a small receiver connected to the VTR or camera.

I Used A Flash...
I Used A Flash...
During a live performance of a band in a dark bar, and I didn't like it... At this point, I think everyone should be put on notice that I am getting a little grumpy... My grumpies are coming from the amount of people who when thinking about using "Flashes" they think it should be the MAIN and ONLY light source in their photos... There's a place for that...No really, there is. But when shooting a performance I have been a firm believer that you should crank the ISO, "push it" in post and by all means create art out of it instead of trying to make the cleanest image ever... So there are a few photographers, that I see often at lots of shows, that are blasting flash and sometimes more than 1 - all over the place... It's obnoxious. Now the need for these small "We make no money" bands for photographs is large and people are always happy when images are taken of them... But I tend to believe that the audience wishes the photographer would fall to the ground clutching their chest and breaking their Wireless Trigger in the process so that they can go back to not being given a tan by the on-full power strobes going off... Back to where I was going and how I got there... Having been in the bar the Corduroy Sky would be playing in, where my wife would be singing some vocals and witnesses said photographers blowing up the place with light, I knew I was going to have issues... The Grey Horse Tavern is a beautiful Restaurant and Bar in the town of Bayport. Its intimate, is cozy, its dark and its about organic... So, you wouldn't believe what I did; - I planned - I thought - I troubleshot - I created incredible photographs Using 1 light, at 1/128th power, gelled with a 1/4 CTO (orange) filter and only 4 double a batteries and a couple of pocket wizards, I decided, that I would make awesome photographs that wouldn't scream - " HEY! I used a flash to make this" "The shadow's under their eyes make it look GREAT!"... Well - you need to know your subject. Casual Rock bands and folk artists don't really need to look like a demon while playing music... its just not required and probably doesn't fit the artist. So you troubleshoot, what is the best lighting? I think Strobist and others would say the best lighting might be when you don't know if there was lighting used at all.. So with a simple single flash, gelled, and set up for a little pop of light - you push your camera's ISO with a fast lens and you push your technique... You challenge yourself... Canon 5D, Canon 135/F2 F/2.2, 1/60th, ISO1250 Pocket Wizard in Hot Shoe 1 580ex, 1/128th power - gelled with 1/4 CTO Filter Mounted to a Paramount Hot Shoe, Mounted to a Bogen Justin Clamp. Triggered with a Pocket Wizard Just as a heads up, there are going to be a series of photographs with longer stories to discuss whats going with the set up, and as much as I don't want to draw lighting diagrams, I am probably going to draw one, and use it for all the photos.
Lamp Explosion Set-up
Lamp Explosion Set-up
Here is the setup used for my lamp explosion pictures. The background is lit by some kind of Minolta flash, I just got it yesterday since my 285HV blew up. Off camera there is another stack of cans with a box full of newspapers that catches the BB's. Just out of the frame there is a halogen lamp laying on the ground used for aiming, and to screw in new lamps. When it came time to shoot another lamp, David would aim and then I would switch the lamp off and give him the cue to shoot. There is a PC in the corner of the room to the right of this picture. Attached to the PC is a microphone. When the sound of the BB hitting the cardboard box is picked up it is amplified and sent out the audio jack where I have a SCR (Silicon Controlled Rectifier) switching a Gadget Infinity wireless trigger.
