Trying to make a shutter release cable and i cant find where to solder the wires. Answered

I put the wires through the switches and covered it with solder, then i attach both wires in random order because i did know which was which with a blob of solder and plugged it into my canon 1000d and it held the shuter randomly for 5 seconds on average randomly regardless on buttons pressed.
Im supposed to attach the ON/OFF switch to the very end and the button to the middle and supposedly another wire to the base? WHERE IS THE BASE AND WHAT THE F@&K IS GOING ON? Ive spent two hours feeling like a retarded jack@$$. please help
