Studio Photography Help
Mar 19, 2014

Hi all, thanks in advance for any help.

Other than personal photography, I take photos of merchandise to sell online. I have a Nikon D3000, which I am happy with, but I wanted to set up an indoor studio. I bought a Nikon D2H (in fantastic condition!) and put together a cheap soft box that should work for me.

I have a friend who is a Canon fan boi (boo, hiss) who recommended I use Yongnuo speedlites as slaves, and a Yongnuo wireless transmitter fitted to the hot shoe of the D2H as the master. I like the quality of his photos, so I bought three YN560-III Speedlites and the YN603n wireless transmitter.

The D3000 is more my speed -- it's automatic -- and I'm lost with all this equipment. I don't know what to set on the D2H and can't figure it out with the manual or from googling. I can't get the transmitter to transmit, I can't get any of the flash units to flash, and I'm into this set up for quite a large sum of money, plus I desperately need to photograph merchandise. As it is right now, I have a ton of inventory and no photos.

I need a really basic explanation that says 1. do this; 2. then do this, 3. then do that, 4. etc. Help?!
