    yeah same Jen. Such a massive variety to do in photography. I was thinking of getting a macro lens, And possibly a new telephoto lens. I like the idea of the 17-85mm IS USM for a standard how do you feel about them? I also like the 50 mm f/ 2.5

    nice 1 jen although id just add a couple of quick points . tripod : invaluable when shooting natural light when shutter speedas are lower and you havent got the action freezing ability of the flash , you do however miss a lot of shots while setting up etc .

    when using flash handheld is the way to go imho . the flash will help freeze any motion and as long as you nail the focus its a more mobile and verasatile way of shooting . much easier and quicker to adjust for a moving target like a busy bug . although difference between optimum focus and almost focused is a very small movement so a bit of practice is needed .

    using flash for macro is a good learning curve too . with the close distances involved it really forces you to learn to controll the flash etc , which is a what im fighting with at the moment .
