It can be quite simple and affordable. Often I will use 2-4 older Nikon units (Canon, Vivitar, etc. are great too). Typically I start around 1/2 power, depending on size of room, and place a pocket wizard on each. I prefer the older, manual units for the simple reason they are simple and inexpensive to replace in the event one gets knocked over. That being said, I try to place the lights in corners out of the way and sandbag each stand. Sometimes a Bogen Justin Clamp can come in handy to attach the flash to an existing fixture. Most often I can just shoot a couple quick tests and dial the exposure in accordingly without every having to adjust the flashes. Works great and can be very effective, especially on those occasions when a strobe is included in the frame and creates an interesting layer to the lighting.
