I have currently a Nikon D850 along with a SB-700 flash, whose main purpose is to shoot cosplays in events. I'm happy that using it on the hotshoe would get better photos than without it, but still I'm not satisfied. So I'd like to experiment to having it off-camera. Now, I've read [various] ways to trigger the flash off-camera, and I still am ...

I find that firing at shorter than the sync speed of 1/320 at say 1/400 will work. It removes the effect of the pop-up flash on short range subjects at wide apertures. It also removes the catchlight from the eyes which is from on-camera flash and separate to the off-camera softbox. Of course going to FP mode faster than sync speed means you will lose maybe ...
