D810 and a schoolboy error using Studio lights - help!

A friend has kindly lent his Bowens Esprit 500 studio lights

I have a Nikon d810

Flash sync speed set to 1/250

Shutterspeed set to 250

at 2.8

ISO 100

I have no connecting lead, so the 810's pop up flash is set as commander mode.

Both camera and Bowens lights do flash but the image only seems to register the pop up.

Conscious that I'm missing a really simple explanation so apologies in advance.

But appreciate someone telling me what it is???

Many thanks in advance

Nikon D810
