I have been asked to take photos of flora for a local biodiversity project I am involved with.
I have a decent amount of experience with macro work, mainly filming. I will be using my canon 100mm f2.8 macro on my 7D.
Many of the photos then need to be sent to an illustrator to be drawn up for signs that will be provided along walking tracks. I will therefore need to be shooting at around f5.6 or higher (to capture as much detail as possible) which will limit available light.
I was therefore wondering if anyone could recommend a cheap macro light/flash setup. I have spent a lot of money on gear lately so i only really have a budget of around $100
I have see the Canon MR14EX and MT-24EX Macro Twin Lite Ringlite Flash and would love to have them but they are just too expensive at this stage.
Any help would be great.
