One of the things I learned early on with two flashes ... is that you usually need some (oh whose kidding who ... a lot) of flexibility with a "second" or "SLAVE" flash.

In my case, I found this was best resolved with adding an RC2 plate to the flash foot that accompanies each elex flash.

What this allows you to do is use your regular tripod as a real quick ad hoc lightstand for the "SLAVE" (or even the PRIMARY flash, if used wirelelssly) flash and literally place it at any height and location, without spending any more than the $10.00 for the plate.
