Hey, my name is Sam. You can check out my older work here or here. I've got a Canon Digital Kiss N. I have the standard 18-55, the Tokina 10-17, and the Sigma 10-20. What else do I need? Just today I saw this gorgeous shot of a snail on part of my house, and I almost teared up because I just could capture the incredulousness, you know? I've got two jobs lined up, one working at a studio downtown that specializes in portraits, and the other is working for a production company where I would be documenting clubs, concerts, and events relating to that. When not working, rather, when not being paid, I take pictures of everything - the parties I go to, the bands I see, the buildings I walk near, the colours I'm surrounded by, etc. Mostly, I make sure I can look at one picture from a day, or whatever, and I know everything that happened that day. What would you recommend? Lens type, and place to purchase. Or even if it's a flash I should invest in. What should I stay away from? What are your tips and suggestions?

I should probably mention that I don't/can't use photoshop or anything of the sort. I haven't tried, nor do I really want to, though, anytime soon. I suppose that's something to keep in mind when thinking about what lenses or accessories I should consider.

Other than the above, though, I'm always looking to build up my portfolio some more, and help some people in need of a cheap/free photographer.
