You need more stuff?

You’re only as good as your tools, so get the right stuff, learn how to use it, and practice, practice, practice.


Dewitt Jones, an amazing photographer and one of the best speakers on photography I’ve ever heard, tells a story about a little kid who asked him a very pertinent question. Dewitt had set up his tripod and camera, and then decided he needed another lens, which was back in his room.
