A little background of where I am now. I have 4 speedlights that I use at weddings, along with 2 Profoto B1's. Depending on the site, I'll use a speedlight on each of my D810's to bounce light. Some situations where bouncing is not an option, I mount my B1's and speedlight on stands in all 4 corners of the room, facing towards the dance floor. I use my Air Remote TTL-N to trigger the B1's, and have my speedlights on slave. This has not been an issue so far. FWIW, I only use manual on all of my lights/strobes, I don't use TTL during weddings. I fairly understand the complications when using TTL in multiple lighting setups.
So, my question is in regards to using a speedlight on camera to bounce and using my Air Remote TTL-N at the same time to use as kickers. Has anybody tried this or know of a way to make this possible? The main reason, is so I have light on my subject when I need it. There have been numerous times when my off-camera lights create too harsh of lighting and shadows. This is caused from guests in the way of my lights, and/or I'm not in the right position.
I bought a hotshoe splitter from this company called, Andoer from Amazon, it looks like it has the right terminal contacts. But we'll see if this works. Any other suggestions are welcome.
