I have a trip coming up in a few months to Central America, and I really would like to improve my reptile photography, especially snakes/lizards. Currently I use a Canon with a 100mm non L macro lens, and a Yongnuo wireless transmitter with a Yongnuo Speedlite YN600EX-RT II.
I was looking at the Yongnuo YN-24EX Macro light. I was wondering if it was a good idea to use the Macro ring light for night hiking in the field, and save the wireless transmitter/ off camera flash for if we bring any animals back to photograph in a more controlled setup? It would make the setup easier to carry since I wouldn't have to pull out the flash every time I wanted to photograph something.
Just looking for some advice, since Ive never used a ring flash before.
