We love Phottix Indra500 TTL. We know it inside-out, yet how do we cooperate it with our Phottix system!? Let’s see how Phottix Pro Team member James & Stefani Hays make use of the Phottix system to take photos!

The first set with was taken late day and it was overcast so not very bright out. I used the Phottix speed lights(2) in the soft box shown. They are connected to the Indra battery so the recycle times are fast.
