Do you really need that new.....

We all know that photographers lust after gear. Some photographers change equipment like they change underwear. Today's message is let's learn to use the stuff we have. I have always advocated that people should buy the type of gear that they can afford. When I was a young photographer all I had was a f/2.8 50mm lens. It was cheap and I knew it but I did not care. I took pictures and learned to create images. If I wasn't close enough I moved closer. I learned to fill the frame. I learned angles, lines and circles. Most importantly I studied light. I paid attention to the color and shape of light. I looked at how the light changed with the seasons. Gear will not make you a better photographer.
