One of the things about being completely self taught with the photography thing is that you end up with a lot of blind spots. When you don't know what you don't know. As an example, I mucked around with Photoshop for years before realizing that layers were a thing (which is like driving for years before you realize that the clutch is a thing).
For a while I've had a vague idea that radio light controls were a thing that pro types did and I've been fiddling around with IR slaves instead.
Today I watched a tutorial about Pocket Wizards.
Oh yes, this is going to be glorious.
