D40 with a kit lens and a[masked] zoom. Most of my photography is horses and wildlife so the zoom is my workhorse. I'd love to get something more suited to portrait and studio work but I have zero budget. :D
I really like wildlife photography, but I really need to learn most about indoor, studio, portrait type work. Pretty much all of my work has been outdoor shoots, I don't even know how to set up a light stand. :D
Just a wider range of skills and maybe more of an idea what I'm doing. I'm sort of seat-of-pantsing it, I shoot on manual a lot and get good shots most of the time but honestly don't even know what I'm doing. :D
I'm not sure it's humanly possible to choose just one. The series on snakes that Mark Laita just released in his book Serpentine is currently blowing my mind with how simple and awesome it is.
To meet some cool people I can learn things from and maybe get the opportunity to shoot the sort of subjects I wouldn't normally have a chance to shoot.
I'm a writer, artist, and amateur photographer living in Salt Lake.
