good idea

Re>I am thinking of getting the flash off camera by getting a 430 EX II ($250) and a Vello E-TTL cord that is 33' (~ $50), and also an umbrella with stand (maybe ~ $75 to $100).  That way I can experiment with off camera flash and hopefully get better photos<

Good idea, although the cord is probably too long.

Do not buy a Photoflex cord.

I often use the system you suggest, more or less, and it works well.

With that setup you can use e-ttl or you can use manual flash.

And FOR SURE you will get better pictures.
