12 months on, what would you change?
Oct 29, 2012

Ok, this could also go into the beginners forum, but what I am curious about is those, like myself, who have only been into photography for about a year, what would you do different if you could sell all your gear & start all over again? I know from bitter experience that I bought too many lenses before I knew whether I needed them or not. I think I have accumulated about 8 when I really only use or need about 4 of them. I have just upgraded from a 600D/T3i to a 7D, one decision I am glad I made. Not that the 600D is a bad camera, but there were a few things about the 7D that made it a better choice for me. I tend to be quite impulsive with things like gear, but now recognise that it's not improving my photography skills, all this looking & swapping. I am now lookng for a good tripod, having, once again, impulsively bought a few rubbish cheapo's. Taking my time on it this time. So, what about it? would any of you benefit from a fresh start?
