I'm getting a little bit frustrated... I've been trying SO hard to get better at this stuff, I'm reading tons and looking at so many different artists' work... but I'm getting more and more confused. I have my Nikon D50. PS CS2. and an SB-600 external flash, a polarizing and uv filter..... what should I get next? I feel slightly overwhelmed... should I get another lens? Should I invest in some lighting stuff? What about a reflector? These seem like silly questions I know, but if I don't ask... then I'm afraid I'll keep doing the same thing over and over expecting different results... and that is the definition of insanity... I kind of would like to not drive myself insane if I can help it haha I also feel like I need to kind of give you a window into my artistic eye to help you make a suggestion.... I really like portrait photography, but I like it edgy... not dark, but not like every other portrait photographer. I would really like to see myself improve, but I kind of feel like I'm on the same boring road.... what should be my next step?
