Hi! I've been into photography for about a few months more than a year and I think it is now about the right time to add a flash into my equipment. However, since I have zero experience with flashes, I don't know what to get. Any suggestions? My gears are as follow.
Canon 5D M2
100mm 2.8 macro
I am planning to get a flash that is powerful enough to allows me to take portrait with my 100mm lens (I think most if not all speedlite should satisfy that). And hopefully works well with macro (maybe a remote flash that is detachable to prevent the lens from blocking the flash?). I considered ring flash but find it limiting and rather expensive. I've seen a few ring flash adapters as well (both DIY and made ones like orbis) but they have either fatal flaws or are really expensive.
I am a little confused by all the choices I have right now. My price range is about 300 or hopefully less.
