Question about the Godox / Flashpoint system
1

I'm using the X pro trigger.  I have 3 godox lights. I'm also using a Sekonic L-308S-U light meter.

Here's the question / problem, something I've never figured out how to do: The camera and flashes are all set up. All I want to be able to do is walk over to the subject and fire a test flash to get a readout on my meter. I've never figured out a good way to do it with the equipment I'm using?

I can take the X pro trigger off the camera and walk over to the model and test fire the flashes, but taking the X pro off and on is a bit of a pain. I can set the camera timer to take a shot after I've walked over to the subject. But again, that is also a small pain.

Is there a better way?
