so I have been side lighting photos of my infant daughter using a 580 exii, an umbrella, and a yongnuo 622c... and even though I can't access all the ettl features immediately (I'm pretty sure it is operator error), I think the shadows from being side lit aren't exactly what I'm looking for.
so I wasn't too get a cheap manual flash that I can couple with my rouge flash bender to add some fill flash or maybe even side lit fromtheother side using a wire that attached to the hot shoe.
I was thinking about one of the newer brand flashes for 40 bucks, but once I nut it it will only be worth twenty bucks if I sell it. I hate losing money on gear... it drives me nuts. so I was thinking, maybe I should buy something like a 430 ex ii which will retain its value, but 200 v 40 seems like a bad use of resources.
I see really old manual speed lites on craigslist, but the head doesn't articulate backwards...
so the question is... what is the right price to pay for a manual flash that will only be used inside the home for fill light.
