Help with Canon Flashes
Apr 9, 2012


I'm pretty new to flash systems. I have a Canon 580 EX II and I was wondering, how do photographers use it off the camera? Specifically, in long-exposure photography when one can take the speedlite and flash it multiple times towards a house or bridge to light it up against the stars. Is there a transmitter piece or a how-to about this?

Is there a technique to get it to flash on it's own without having a master on the camera?

I use a Canon 7D by the way,

Thanks so kuch
