Austin Thomas recently won the PocketWizard photo contest with his image of a starling in flight.   Resulting in a very interesting article on the PocketWizard website, giving an in-depth insight to his setup when photographing wild birds.

An excerpt taken from PocketWizard’s blog says ‘Austin used a FlexTT5 attached to his Canon 1D Mark IV remote camera and a CM-N3-P remote camera cable to capture the winning image, “Starling in Flight.” He is able to trigger the remote camera from a distance using a MiniTT1 on a Canon 1D X in his hands. His goal, with triggering the remote camera with a camera in his hands, was to capture two images at the same time. Austin used a similar set-up last summer to capture images of an owl as seen below.’

Austin recently gave a talk to his local Young Farmers Group to enrich the knowledge of Wildlife in his local community.
