I strongly believe in getting your basic skills right and polish before advancing into another level of Digital photography. Such as, understanding how and why is "this picture" being taken/achieve.
After spending sometime using the following setup, I've come to understand the limitation and what my camera can achieve and cant.
Currently using canon 550D + batt grip + tamron 17-50mm f2.8 VC, 50mm f1.8.
After learning about landscape and now I am moving into both indoor/outdoor portrait, I have come to the point where it's time to take up external flash technique, due to the limitation of pop-up flash.
As such, I like to request for forummers advise on where and how did you pick up your knowledge. I have been reading online but will like to check if there are any other issues which I might or probably have miss out on. Please feel free to advise.
Initially, I am considering between Canon 580EX II and Canon 430EX II.
There is intention to upgrade to FF between another 1 to 2 years time.
I have this concept of getting a 580EX II because that it will be possible to step down on the power output if require and impossible to step-up on the output power of 430EX II.
But the other consideration is, the size of 580EX II on a cropped body and will the function be fully utilise?
Hope someone will be able to share your experience or advise on my situation.
