    ok so I want to look into getting lights, backdrops, light boxes, etc.

    I was wondering if someone could give me a pointer as to where or what should i begin buying seeing that im still a beginner.

    I think lights first because a picture can be soo much better with the right lighting, i think?

    also some night shots i took tonight

    self C&C says they both suck cause the lights are so flarred? and in the car one there is to much reflection but how would i go about fixing that?

    Personally, I don't mind reflections, so long as they're controlled. In the first, the camera was obviously moved while taking the shot, the second is over exposed in some spots and underexposed in others.

    Still not listening I see? I am pretty sure those questions have been answered one way or another, learn correct methods first, then shoot. Am I missing something here guys?

    You might want to get that side mirror on the left car checked out.

    Better bring the camera in for repairs also, there is something seriously wrong with it.

    Epic Fail.

    only 2 of 5 pictures taken, neither of them very good.

    Now, to the topic on hand. You do not need any hardware. Not until you learn to be competent with what you have. Judging by your first picture though, you could use a tripod.
