With the help of a wireless trigger set, you can control the flash from a distance. A wireless flash system consists of a transmitter and a receiver. The moment you shoot a photo, the transmitter and receiver connect to each other. At that same time, the flash goes off. This ensures convenience and flexibility. Most flash systems have a huge range, often even up to 20 or 50 metres!
Advantages of wireless flash
The advantage of wireless flash is that you can determine from which angle your subject is lit. This gives you more freedom for playing with the light and shadows. Additionally, it is possible to use flash light for objects that you are photographing from up close. Some trigger sets can also operate your camera. This way, you can easily take a picture from a distance.
It is also possible to control multiple flashes at the same time with a trigger set. This allows you to expose a subject from multiple angles. Most flashes feature an integrated slave receiver that responds to light impulses. This receiver registers when the source flash goes off and this also activates the flash itself. This sounds perfect, but using the slave receiver also has some limitations. For example, a slave receiver has a small range and does not register the flash when there is a lot of sunlight, or if there is an object between the flash and the source flash. In those situations, an additional receiver is very useful. Some new flash models can be triggered by light pulses and radio waves.
