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.
