I am curious what pieces of gear did you hardly ever use but then once you started to finally get used to it now you use a ton. I personally hardly ever used my flash. I never wanted to take the time/money to find out how to use it properly with my film camera. Even when I got my digital I still never really used the flash. But recently I began to learn how to manual dial it in for fill flashes and now can't seem to put it down. So what other sort of gear did you neglect to use for forever and then how did you get hooked on it?
