We are looking to purchase our first off camera flash. We haven't used off camera flashes before and have very limited knowledge about them. We have searched AP, which has helped but still are a bit unclear. We have aD300s and a D60. We are looking to use this for a couple of purposes:
1. Low landscape shots to highlight foreground interest.
2. Indoor portrait work to compliment natural .
We don't want to spend a huge amount of money until we know we are going to get good use out of it. Our questions are:
What brands are reasonable. We have read that is good, but more expensive. Yongnuo appears to be cheaper, but not as good as . Are there others.
What else other than the flash do we need. Does the camera activate the flash or is there a remote trigger of some sort?
Is there terminology we need to use to better search AP or the internet.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
