I see that a complete set should include a key, a fill, a hair and a background light. What a complete set includes is very subjective and depends a lot on the desired look. Given that this is your first set, I would shy away from buying that many units. Start with one or two and add them as necessary. You didn't buy the "complete" set of lenses for your ...

The main or key is set high to simulate afternoon sun. The fill is subordinate and best placed at lens height near the camera. You are filling shadows as seen from the camera's viewpoint. If main and fill are equal as to output, measure main to subject distance and multiply by 1.4. This computes fill distance that causes the fill to be subordinate by 1 f-...

The LumoPro LP180 is a "dumb" manual-only single-pin flash. It has no built-in radio receiver, and no way to control its power remotely, so all an Odin can do is trigger it. The newer LumoPro LP180R, however, is still a single-pin manual-only flash, but has a built-in Odin/Strato receiver, and through the receiver, can have its power and zoom settings ...

No. You can't control YN-560IVs with an SB-700 the same way an SB-700 can control another SB-700 using Nikon's Creative Lighting System (CLS). Only the Yongnuo flashes with EX in the name have this capability. CLS is a proprietary optical (light pulse based) signaling protocol that requires a CLS receiver in remote flashes. The YN-560 series of Yongnuo ...

You can set Exposure Compensation directly on the speedlight. Second button from the left. Note that any EC set on camera is in addition to any EC set on the speedlight. Camera +1, speedlight -1 result is 0 EC.

Simply having the 430EXII in Manual mode isn't sufficient. It must also be out of slave mode. The slave modes for the 430EXII are for Canon's wireless eTTL optical-based system. Your Cybersync triggers are replacing that system, and using the PC sync port to trigger the flash. If the 430EXII is in Slave mode, it's only listening to the optical sensor under ...

The flash should be set in Manual mode, not Slave mode. When used in Slave mode there must be a Master flash optically controlling the 430EX II through the optical receiver on the flash. In Slave mode the signals through the pins on the flash shoe are ignored. If there are channel and slave symbols visible in the lower right corner of the 430EX II's LED ...
