Flash photography made easy: master it all from pop-up flash to multiple flashguns

Using radio triggers in your flash photography

If you’re really serious about taking pictures with multiple off-camera flash units, consider buying a set of radio triggers, 
or try a PocketWizard.

This nifty device will fire all your lights simultaneously.

While slaves and infrared triggers are fine in most situations, there will be times when the ‘connectivity’ between the various flashguns and your camera will fail.

A PocketWizard may be expensive (a basic set-up costs about £100), but will be worth every penny if you get a taste for multiple flash work.
