Sometimes traveling with heavy photographicgear could be an issue, especially by plain these days with all the luggage restrictions.For me the answer is the marvelous world of Strobist photography with wireless triggers,portable light boxes, speedlights ect.This particular beauty make up shoot was done in South Africa.
