Once again, Mark Wallace over at SnapFactory got yet another great tutorial vid on PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 and high speed sync. So far, Pocket Wizard only have the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 out for the Canon (HK availability soon).  Nikon will be shipping later this Fall and still no words on Sony.

If you are a regular of AlivenotDead, you would be familiar with LUMINA.  If you are not, Check out the LUMINA web series coming out this summer.

The Story – Lumina Wong is beautiful and works far too much; although she lives in a city of millions, she still feels lonely and isolated. Late one night, Lumina has a chance encounter with Ryder Lee, a handsome young man from another world that she can only see in mirrors and darkened window reflections. She revels in the fantasy relationship until mirrorspy Eben Sanchez comes into her life, warning her of the treacheries of the people of the Dark Realm. Soon Lumina must choose between the safety of the world she knows and the deadly allure of the unknown.

Written and directed by Jennifer Thym, LUMINA is an original web series shot on the cutting edge RED One and stars JuJu Chan and Michael Chan as well as many of your favorite AlivenotDead artists!

The trailer is produced by Sommer Nguyen of Sommertime Productions and features music from La’Dies and the Dreaming Punk, courtesy of the Enigmatic Army.

LUMINA the Web Series starts summer 2009. Stay tuned.
