I am new to trying remote trigger flash photography, as I almost always shoot available light performance stuff. Last weekend at EP Levines, up here near Boston, I attended an all day lighting seminar with Bobbi Lane. It was a great learning day and that has my interest cued up. I shoot mainly concerts, big events with fairly decent lighting. I recently went and shot a small dark club that would have been far too dark to obtain good images, however, the soundboard guy and I got to talking before the show about photography (he was one of us) and he offered me use of two old flashes SB 24s and the 'cheap knockoffs" he had with him. So, I set on on top of a monitor that was 10 feet from lead singer on small monitor about 8 ft high and the other I strapped side stage to a pole. It was a lot of fun shooting that. Both flashes were at their lowest settings.
With that being said.... I think I am looking to find a combination that will allow me to set up a couple remote flashes and control their output from the camera/transceiver.
Do you know of an affordable way to do that?? 3rd party, Nikon, Chinese, old or new choices are all on the table. I currently have a SB 24 and SB400 along with my D700.
Your gonna miss 100% of the shots you never take, so keep shooting.
