Have always been interested in Macro photography, would like to seek advice on the necessary setup for taking shots of insects and butterflies.
My targeted setup would be 350D, Canon 100mm and a flash (undecided, most likely 430Ex).
My question would be: do any of you feel that an off-camera shoe cord is necessary?
I have posted this question with another photography group specialising in the niche area of butterfly photography, but decided to put it here also because of the higher traffic.
Thanks in advance.
