Im really new to the whole lighting part of phtography, i have no experience or knowledge to draw on in this area!
I've currently got a nikon D3000, and I am looking to get a flash system, prefferably one that I can use ttl, and remotly.
Id dont really want to spend alot of money so kinda looking for a cheap (ish) and good quality option, or at least the best for a small buget.
Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with d3000 and flashes?

Sadly, if you want the facilities, you'll have to pay for them. Older flashguns like the SB28 don't work well with the later bodies, which is why they now cost so little.
Beware of putting a non-Nikon flash onto the hot shoe. Ask the flashgun-maker or importer about the trigger voltage to make sure it won't damage your camera.
Quite happy to spend if i need to, just kinda looking for a range of suggestions.
any one tried some good models?
Nikon SB-700, Sorted.....
That said to fire it remotely you'll need a trigger set because your D3000 has no CLS functions, ie: No master/slave options, However with the SB-700 on the D3000 you will have full CLS functionality via the SB-700, Should you decided to expand your " Flash Lighting " techniques.....
Going silly cheap is always an option, But so often leads to dissapointment in results, The choice is yours....!!!
