    I see 2 flashes, one camera right one camera left.


    You can either A: do what the above poster said, or B use Nikon's CLS if you shoot Nikon.

    I use CLS and have used it for bike races before and it rocks.

    I have a Canon, so CLS is out. When you say triggers, is that so you can trigger the shutter hands-free or to trigger the flash?

    To trigger the off camera flash. 3 brands are pocket wizards and radio poppers but there are many different options.

    There are 10 type of people in this world, those that understand binary and those that don't. :greenpbl:

    OP - What's your budget? You can get a setup for $120 for two flashes and triggers. That's no lightstands or anything else and the triggers aren't the most reliable. That's also a set of used flashes.

    That or you could step up to a setup that's about $510 for a very reliable set of triggers, two stands with adapters, and two new Sunpak 383's.

    Or you could go with an uber setup that's like $1500. It all depends on your budget.

    OK, I've been out of this a while ...
    there are a gazillion wireless flash triggers on e-bay -- direct shipped from Hong Kong. They're pretty cheap. Do they work?

    I use pocket wizards, but at $180 each they are pricey.

    I'm not too serious about buying any yet, I've just been looking into it some because I like the effect.

    Thanks though
