A brief background first:
I’m a photographer/retoucher by trade - but its also my hobby. The work I do is mostly product photography, but the hobby is much more creative and ever-increasingly strobist in nature.
What I’ve figure out so far:
I’d like an ETTL flash with HSS and I’d like to stay in the sub $200 range to pick up some modifiers (on a budget).
Been looking at used Canon 580EX’s ~ 430EX II’s, or new YongNuo YN-568EX and YN-500EX or even the Godox Ving V860C.
I’m looking to get more/better speed lights - considering the gear in my signature what would be your recommendation as to what would be a good fit in my kit with an eye towards the future? I could possibly afford 2 each of the 430EX IIs or 500EXs - but I’m afraid of regretting their limitations down the road. I’m not opposed to making a purchase now based on dropping my current Speedlites at a letter date and replacing them. Also keep in mind that since I plan on continuing to use my YongNuo triggers that I realy don't need Speedlites with "Master" capabilities.
I welcome any opinions and/or questions regarding this. Thanks you very much in advance for your time.
