I have been looking at wireless triggers and receivers. No matter what the brand, nearly all emphasize their long range. I have looked at a number of videos that specifically test the range of the triggers. I am curious to know under what scenarios a photographer would need to fire a flash that is say 100m away from the camera. What kind of photo would they be looking to capture?
I can understand sports photographers having a remote camera and flash next to each other and firing the camera from some distance away ... but when would you want the flash/camera difference to be up to 100m away?
I have thought maybe highlighting a tree well into the background of a shot?
I can understand the advantages of being able to fire strobes that do not have a line of sight and are some distance away ... but there seems to be a selling point focus on huge distances that the triggers can operate over.
Thanks for enlightening me.
