Chancelynn2002:

Since you are using a Canon camera, why not use Canon 580EX ii with an ST-E2 so that you can go wireless with your flash? You can add as many flashes to you system as you want and get inexpensive accessories such as softboxes and umbrellas.  You can make key and fill ratios which can really enhance your photos.  Learning to use Canon wireless does have a learning curve so don't expect everything to work perfect at first.  I also want to pass along that I have done hundreds of cat and dog photos with electronic flash and never have any of the animals even noticed the flash.
