photomia Silver Member Nikonian since 15th Jan 2011

I have 2 SB-800s and one SB-910. I shoot with a D700. Today I was trying to set up a studio shot (I'm new to this) using main, fill and background lights. I then discovered that the pop-up flash on my 700 would handle only two groups and since I wanted each light to be at a different power level, I was unable to use a 3-light set-up. Any suggestions on what external trigger I should use to handle 3 groups? Do I need an SU-800 or something else?

Also, for those who do studio portraiture, instead of umbrellas, would you suggest a soft box or Phototeck softlighter. I am currently working on business head shots, but also want to use this set-up for my grandchildren (when they decide to sit still!)

As always, thank you...

Pat
