    Matt,
    I used to trigger my flash lights with the build in flash of the camera and than I could chose to use that one just for commander light. I just tested this with a SB-900 in commander mode. Dail the top line M to --- and point the flash straight to where you want. You can see the commander flash in the mirror, but that is all the commander flash will produce. I'm glad I have wireless triggers now, but also glad I can share some budget experience.

    Dear Matt,
    I have just come across a youtube channel that seems to have your videos on. As I have not seen the full versions of these that you post yourself, I am presuming that these are the videos you are selling, hence, this is why I am informing you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebqXnjRZu_0

    Kind regards,
    John
