I would like to photograph a falling object in burst mode and light it using an off camera flash.
My current gear includes the following:
- Canon 550D
- Starblitz 2000BTZ flash
- Two Cactus V5 wireless transceivers
- I can borrow a second Starblitz flash
Currently the Startblitz can't keep up with the burst speed of my camera (3.7fps). I figured I would need to have a second flash (with an additional wireless transceiver) that fires on the second frame, while the first flash recharges, then on the third frame the first flash fires again, the second one recharges, etc...
How can I direct all the odd trigger signals to the first flash and all the even trigger signals to the second flash? Is that even possible with my current gear? Or is there a whole different approach to shooting with burst mode using a flash?
