    1st Engagement Shoot

    My cousin is getting engaged in a few weeks and there's going to be a bit of a extended family get together for the ceremony. She's asked me to be her photographer for the engagement because she likes the pictures I take (even though by my very own admissions I'm still in the amateur leagues)...

    Should I get some triggers or not

    My current body doesn't have a commander mode for the flash (D5100), so I've been looking into a Yongnuo YN-622N setup of sorts to do some off camera flash triggering. I'm looking at getting YN-622N x2 (for my SB-700s) YN-622N-TX x1 (as the commander) I think the above will work quite well...

    Nikon SB-300

    New Nikon SB-300 Flash unveiled Nikon SB-300 AF Speedlight | Speedlight Flash for Nikon D-SLRs and Hot-Shoe Equipped COOLPIX Cameras Looks like it's a smaller lighter version of the SB-400, but with more tilt on the bounce than it's bigger brother.

    D5100 with two off camera flashes

    Hope people more knowledgeable than me can help me out here. I know the D5100 doesn't have a flash commander mode built in, therefore you'd need something like a SB-700 on the camera to trigger another remote flash (SB-700). However, if I wanted to have both SB-700s off camera, what's the best...
