Advice Accepted (portability vs power)

Hello All,

Today I received 3 tt600 speedlights and a godox X2T P trigger (with pass through adapter) and I could not be happier. The ability to work with lights that are manageable with a few basic controls is wonderful. My wife wants to be my VAL at the moment so I haven’t even broken out my new boom stands yet.

Just taking portraits of the dogs with 3 lights set at random power set about the room makes photographs that would never be possible relying completely on ambient light. I will be playing with these for months and even then I am not sure I want to move to a studio strobe anytime soon.

Adding flash opens a whole new world that I never really had an appreciation for until this point. Thanks to everyone for their help and guidance.

I concur. I was a photographer for for 30 years and had never understood flash or used it creatively. It opens up a whole new world.

As soon as you discover the control afforded by working in a controlled space with high quality light shaping tools you will, it is inevitable.

I had already posted to the older thread before seeing this. Enjoy your flashes! It definitely opens up a lot of new possibilities.
