    Since you want to do portraiture you need to get the speedlight off the camera. So, get a Vivitar 285Hv ($90 new) and this radio trigger set ($130 for both the speedlight and radio trigger set).

    You'll even have a 2nd receiver already when you can afford to get a second $90, 285HV.

    I have 4 of the 285HV's.
