Morning everyone,

Im after some advice, I’m look for the best lighting option for macro photography (insects, flowers etc..) for my Olympus & am trying to decide whether I’m better of getting the STF-8 Macro Twin Flash or use a single speadlight with some kind of diffusion?

many thanks,
Joe

My logic is to get a TTL speedlight that can be used with all your lenses and modify it for macro use with diffusers. You can use a speedlight on or off camera.

There are a multitude of uses for flash besides macro. It won't go to waste. What you learn using the speedlight for macro/close-up will teach you to do anything with it.

Thank you for the advice & tips, much appreciated

I initially got the speedlight specifically for macro/close-up and then found how useful it was. Now, I take it everywhere I go. I don't know how I ever got by without it.
