Does canon make a selfie stick that will hold a couple speedlights and a 70-200?

That was the easy part. I had trouble getting the focus right. I had to set the focus manually and mark the spot off with a beer can someone threw out the window.

Your DSLR needs a flip screen. Not a problem at all.

It has one. But I am 9 feet or so away. And without the flash it is pretty damn dark. I set the focus by putting my flash where I was standing and focusing on the LCD.

The common way to do it is to have another object stand in for you as a focus target then switch to manual focus so that the camera does not refocus during the shutter release.

Very nice! I am still missing a speed light.
I have no idea where it is.

If you use one of those cheapy wireless remotes it should autofocus with a standard half-press. At least mine does.

This is pretty much it.

Long as you manual focus and use some sort of stand in your good to go.

If there was something to focus on it would work.
Not enough light before the flash.
