Re: Photography Newb: What am I missing? What don't I need?

There are lots of threads here for all types of photography. I love macro, & have been inspired by some of the stuff the members have posted. Amazing talent. There are birds both on the ground, & in flight [refered to as BIF's.] Architecture, landscape street & portraiture, neither of which I do. As I & others have said, you have some cracking gear, I have the 7D & love it to bits. The trouble with gear, is it's difficult to know now, what you need in the future. If you know what I mean? I bought stuff like lenses, filters etc, when I first started, but I honestly didn't know if I needed them or not. I ended up selling a lot of it at a loss, then waiting, just using kit lenses untill I knew what I needed. Take some shots & show them here. You do sometimes have to have a thick skin, but it's all good stuff. [well, mostly...:-D] Practice & have fun learning.
