The more Speedlites you have, the less power they require to achieve the same results as just using 1.. You can set 4 on quarter power to achieve a “full power” state when used in unison, or you can set them all on half power and have 2x the light you’d achieve by using 1 on full power.. The point is, by doing this–You don’t have the long delay whilst the capacitor is recharging. Also, you can completely “darken” the day with sufficient speedlites and with the right modifiers/reflectors to light up your subject.. It is an extraordinarily dramatic effect you achieve when done correctly..
