I have a 5d mark iii and a speedlite 430 3xii. I am shooting mostly kids and family in my house or outside. Also hockey rinks but that is a nightmare. I have bought a portable background with the white paper. I was given a light stand and a firefly beauty box from family member ( not his) http://www.henrys.com …Y-BEAUTY-BOX-5538860.aspx
How do i hook this up to my flash and camera. I see there is a cord i can buy but do I just plug them in direct, or do I need to buy a part that attaches to the camera and to the flash if I they are on the light stand, also what do I need to do it wirelessly. Looking for a cheap alternative or with this soft box is it better to ignore soft box?
Last questions is most of pics with flash are ok, as my house is darker not a lot of light in the house in good spots for pics, and is there anyway to increase the flash from 1/200 when it is on my camera, as my daughter like pics where they are jumping or in action and the 1/200 leaves it blurry.
I know lots of questions but having problems, I have read the lighting guide but don't know if the technology on equipment has changed since 2006 but the guide does help
