Hey all, obviously I'm a new face here (first post!), and that's mostly because I'm about to jump on purchasing a Canon t5i (18 - 135mm lens) and want to get myself back into learning photography. Along with the camera, I would like to get some of the baseline but essential accessories to go with it (i.e. tripod, maybe a lens hood, polarizing filter, etc). I know there are literally hundreds of accessories I COULD get, so I'm looking for advice on a list of must-have 'starter' accessories I SHOULD get (if there are accessories that aren't as essential to buy when starting out, that'd be good to know too). Then, I'm hoping too get a bunch of these together to save some money. I realize some of this depends on which type of photography I want to get into. Since I will be learning and not sure which area of photography might entice me, I want to pick up several of the basic accessories that are simply nice to have for any type of shoot. I do know I like abstract photography however, but that can fit almost any mold. So, please feel free to share any beginner accessory advice you have or links to any nice Canon accessory package deals that might be worth looking into. Any help appreciated, thank you!
