    I'm wondering, could the TS have meant vertical bounce and horizontal bounce or a combination with twin flash heads or off-cam strobe techniques?

    Horizontal = Turn
    Vertical = Tilt

    on normal 35mm slr with a mounted flash
    in normal view (landscape)
    Horizontal is for bouncing light off wall (if there is) to create side lighting
    Vertical is to bounce off ceiling (if there is)
    Use both together will either bounce off higher wall of each side.

    in rotated view (portrait) (once rotated, axis change)
    Horizontal =same as above but on 1 side, depending where the flash is on now
    Vertical is to bounce off the ceiling or floor
