New toys showed up yesterday

Ordered 1 small light, wound up with 2 larger ones with stands and reflectors and diffusers..
Fotodiox brand, cheap but seems to work good for what I need..
Maybe a win for a change, they should help with my orchid photos..
Now to save up for a nice flash set..

This weekend getting the D5600 and if the batteries will charge the D200..
I have a lady at work that wants me to re-shoot those last orchid pics on white and then black backgrounds so she can use them in a Facebook advertisement for her nail business/side gig...
Shooting individual blooms so she can do the Photoshop thing to them..
She isn't colorblind so they should come out good...lol
If my joints are not screaming to bad I am going to shoot my plants in the bog garden also...

So on the flashes, (also known as speed lights). Your 200 has a program in the menu known as "Remote Commander". The camera can control most of Nikon's speed lights without a remote connected to the hotshoe. I have these.




Honestly, I have 4 of the speed lights now. For some reason they started to go up in price a few years back so I snatched a couple up on fleabay. The larger speed lights should be able to fit your stuff.
