Whether you are just getting into real estate photography, or are a seasoned pro, lights and triggers can be a confusing subject to tackle. In the video, I explain why I feel speedlights are underpowered for most real estate work, and discuss the flash units I feel are best suited for onsite real estate work. As important as the flash units themselves are, the triggering mechanisms used to fire the flashes are just as important. In the video, I discuss triggering options as well. 


The Rovelight 600B. Although they don't produce this particular unit any longer, I highly recommend every real estate photographer have at least one 600ws light in their bag.

I used to own quite a few Nikon speedlights. I sold every last one of them when the first flash unit with a built in trigger (YN 560iii) appeared on the scene.
