Magic of multiple flashguns
Multiple flashguns (2 or 3) from different directions, especially while shooting small wildlife (insects, spiders, reptiles, amphibians, fish, etc.) add a lot of sparkle to the photograph. Apart from allowing the use of large depth-of-field (large f-number such as 16, 22 & more) it completely cuts the distractions caused by a single flash unit mounted on the camera. The resulting studio-like effect makes the images ideal for use in Field Guides to enable identification of species in the field.

Magic of multiple flashguns
Rhacophorus maximus, a large-sized tree frog photographed using the build-in flash of Nikon D200 as the primary flash unit and the SB-700 speedlight as a secondary unit. In this case, the SB-700 was held vertically above the animal (at a distance of one meter) to illuminate the shadows cast by the built-in flash. However, the photographer can try various angles based on the position of the animal and also that of twigs, leaves and other objects that may cast shadows in an undesired manner.
