Placing a flash remotely and fired in sync with your exposure using a slave lets you place light exactly where you want it.

Slave flash
A slave flash is triggered by the firing of your main flashgan. It has a light sensitive receptor.

Slave unit
A light sensitive trigger device used to synch strobes and flashes without an electronic synch cord. Accessory flash "slave" units are available to fire multiple flash units without multiple electrical connections to the camera.

Slave
A photo-electric cell which fires additional flash units simultaneously when it is activated by the light from another flash source set by the camera.

SLAVE UNIT - A light-sensitive triggering device that is built in or attached to an electronic flash unit, causing the flash to fire simultaneously with another flash unit. Also called a "photo slave." ...

Slave
A flash unit that is triggered to fire by the light output from another flash unit (the master flash).

Slave Capabilities
Many modern pack systems and most (all?) modern monolights include an optical sensor that will trigger the unit when another flash goes off.

SLAVE STROBE- If a camera does not have a flash sync socket or a hot shoe and you wish to use an auxiliary strobe light, you can get a slave strobe.

Slave Sensor: A device with a photocell that triggers a flash unit when it senses light from another flash unit. The light from both flash units with be synchronized with the camera.

slave flash-See radio slave flash.
slide-A photographic transparency (positive) mounted for projection.
soft focus-Produced using a special lens that creates soft outlines.

Slave flashes.
Slave flashes are simply self-contained flash units which respond to external triggers of some kind. They're frequently used in studio situations.

Slave unit. An accessory flash unit that supplements the main flash, usually triggered electronically when the slave senses the light output by the main unit.
Slide. A photographic transparency mounted for projection.

Slave Unit (Electronic Flash)
A unit that, like a perfect assistant, responds in a flash to the Master.
Slow Motion (video and film)
The stretching of real time for technical or lyrical reasons. See: Frame Rate.

As slaves. A strobe can have an external sensor that reads when the camera's flash goes off, and that burst of light can trigger the slave strobe to fire.

PHOTO SLAVE - Also called a "slave unit." A light-sensitive triggering device that is built in or attached to an electronic flash unit, causing the flash to fire simultaneously with another flash unit.

Use a slave flash
A slave flash is detached from your camera and can be hand-held or set down anywhere. Some models will work with any camera and will trigger when it senses the camera's flash.

Flash, slave. A flash that fires when it senses the light from another flash unit.
FlaspPix. An image format that contains a number of resolutions, each of which is broken into tiles that can be edited and displayed independently.

Slave flash - Meaning flash that isn't on the camera but is activated as a reaction to another flash. The firing mechanism is a reaction to the light emitted from the other flash or through a wire/wireless connection in more advanced flashes.

Optical Slaves
Here's another alternative to expensive wireless transmitters. Optical slaves attach to flashes and cause them to fire at the exact same time as another flash.

Slave Units
If you have one or more external flash units, you can make them into mini strobes using remote flash triggers.

Slave unit - mechanism which fires other flash sources simultaneously when a photo-electric cell is activated by the illumination emitted by a camera linked flash.
Slide - alternative term for a projection transparency.

A slave unit is a flash that is not actually a part of the camera. It is not internal and it is not connected in the hot shoe. They often have an optical sensor that triggers the flash when the flash on your camera fires.

He slaved away for AT&T, PG&E, Life, and Fortune. He's pretty clear about his complaints with this sort of work. He shot for money since he was a teenager, starting in 1920 shooting class photos.

Consumer Slave
Exactly, and there will always be the need for someone to design those functional and practical clothes to ensure they are functional and practical.

Master and Slave
Professional photographers often set up flashes all around a subject to achieve better lighting effects.

Light-actuated slaves are the smallest, least expensive, and most bulletproof of all slave units.

A sensor, either built-in or external to a remote slave flash unit, will sense the light from the master flash and cause a remote flash to fire.

By the way, optical slaves such as I mention in the article have one limitation.

The flash units can be auxiliary flash units, connected to the camera by extension cords, or they can be slave flash units.

A wireless master/slave flash outfit would really simplify the setup for this kind of work. For most of the bellows setups I positioned the flash units fairly close to the subject and used TTL flash metering.

If you don't have a hot shoe, a slave flash would be an alternative. These fire the flash when they sense another flash nearby going off.

I became a slave to autofocus. A family on vacation asked me to take some pictures of them in front of an old monument with their manual focus camera. Mom, dad, and the kids posed nicely and smiled while I shot a few frames.

The master will control one or more slave flash units. The slave units can be SB-600/800, or the new R-200 macro. The number of slave units is essentially unlimited.

In Program Mode, you accept the role of technological slave and the camera selects both the shutter speed and the aperture for you. It is often called the green mode because it's frequently marked by a green "P" on the mode-selector dial.

In wireless mode, the FL-600R has a built-in commander function to remotely fire other wireless flash units without firing itself, but it can also be used as a slave flash, controlled by a camera's built-in flash or by another commander unit.

I am currently using an old Vivitar flash I got back in the early 80's, attached to a hot shoe flash slave. The function of the slave is to trigger the flash when a second one mounted on my camera goes off.

These are triggered usingfibre-optic cables and a slave system, actuated by the camera’s own internal flash.

a 'slave' system), or you can physically hook them up to your camera's hotshoe with a cable. If you're looking for the cheapest solution, go with a cable.

Edit and choose the photograph that works best for the product.
Use a flash-slave to trigger a multiple-light setup. The slave, attached to other independent flashes or lights, will fire them the same time the camera's flash is triggered.

PVR owners find they are no longer slaves to the schedule. PVRs easily record the programmes you want, allowing you to view them when you choose and skip through ads breaks at the press of a remote-control button.

More and more flash accessories are hitting the market as more photographers turn to multiple slave flash units instead of the larger old-style flash units.

I surround the set with two or three inexpensive, slave-activated units to light the background and subject equally.

You can use the on camera flash and a slave module fitted to the flashgun which detects when the on camera flash fires. You can use a cable that connects the camera to the flash or you can use remote triggers.

1. You shall not tether your camera to your strobe when you can use a radio slave.
2. You shall not break your back with heavy equipment as long as you can get the job done with lighter equipment.

If you have a diagram with measurements of how far away from background all the lights should for a two softbox and one slave light - that would be so helpful. My room size is 14'9 x 14'9. I have dark burgundy walls and can't paint them.

Thanks for the informative website! I'm going to Mombasa next week and was struggling to get my new camera and slave flash working to get any good pictures! Now I'm armed and raring to go - Thanks!

snoot - a tube or cone attached to a lamp or flash unit to restrict the light, producing a spotlighting effect.

You also will need either a flash sync cord or an optical slave that allows you to trigger the flash automatically from your camera. Finally, you will need a speedlight and a tripod to mount the light on.

The latter allows you to use the built-in flash to trigger studio strobes in slave mode (it appears to fire at full power, crucially with no metering pre-flash).

Strobe power output, model light output, on/off for the model light, on off for the internal slave and power, and not every strobe has all of these. The most important control is strobe power output; on some strobes this is the only control! ...

Pre-Flash - Some digicams use a low-power flash before the main flash to set the exposure and white balance. This does not allow the use of a normal photo slave strobe as it will be triggered by the pre-flash.

Best way for illumination is with a couple of flashes, the first one on camera hot shoe faced to a white card and the second one (an slave unit) faced to another card on the opposite side.
