We sat down with Pedro to talk about photography, and his experience using the new Case Air Wireless Tethering System with his Canon 5DSR and Canon 5D Mark IV.
In shooting this beautiful Unik Edition Custom Motorcycle, Pedro was able to shoot tethered wirelessly to his iPad in order to check critical focus using the Case Air.
While we still love cables, one of the drawbacks that we hear from photographers about shooting tethered is that they don’t feel the freedom that they can move around as freely because they’re connected and tethered (literally) to a computer. Opting to shoot wirelessly breaks those doors down. Pedro says that his favorite part of the Case Air is the ability to move around the scene and then quickly share the images out via his iPad to social media.
I would describe my style of photography as…
I don´t like to say I have a special type of style photography, maybe in this order of preference: fashion, conceptual, products, people/ portraits, landscapes, food, and sports. Better yet if I have use speedlights, long exposures and modeling light. Really anything that could be a challenge!
How does the Case Air Wireless Tethering System fit in your workflow?
For me this was one of the greatest inventions of all times, I was so happy to find the Case Air Wireless Tethering System, especially because I shoot most of the times in studio and I use a Canon 5DSR, as you know this camera doesn´t have a Wi-Fi system like my latest acquisition the 5D Mark IV.
Plus, when I shoot outside the studio I don´t want any cable connected to the laptop or mobile, I can just plug in the Case Air on my camera and I’m free to move all around the scene, checking the images in full resolution on my mobile or laptop immediately or even shooting directly on the app with the camera in the tripod.
The ability be able to upload and share the images quickly from my mobile device is also something that I’m enjoy.
Would you recommend the Case Air to fellow photographers, if so, why?
I would highly recommend the Case Air to all my fellow photographers and the photographers that I’ve worked with and have seen the Case Air in action are already buying it after seeing me working with it. If you want great results, saving time and doing things well during your sessions, this is a “must have” that I will always use going forward in studio and on location.
