1 Trig­ger the flash

You need to go old-school and use the cam­era’s pop-up flash to trig­ger the two re­mote flash­guns (each set to op­ti­cal slave). For sim­ple ‘cross-light­ing’, po­si­tion one flash­gun be­hind and above the wa­ter, and the other to the side of the cam­era with a dif­fuser panel to soften it.

2 Back­light the body

Back­light­ing the sub­ject with a flash from be­hind cre­ates an edge high­light along their side, sep­a­rat­ing them from the back­ground. Once the flashes are in the bags it’s hard to ad­just the power, but you can move them closer or fur­ther away to con­trol the in­ten­sity.
