    I'm down to the 30d and 24-70 (and the Ricoh P&S I have for sale).

    What have I become. I need to at least pick up a flash. :o

    There's nothing wrong with it, other than one minor cosmetic detail.

    im still rockin a 10D and 28-105 and 19-35

    i just shoot headshots in direct sun and just diffuse the light with a big shoot through umbrella, and maybe i'll use flash off camera

    I guess i can spend some $ and upgrade, but not one single person has complained about the quality of their pictures

    fuck it

    I've got the opposite problem. I have all the gear but I haven't been out using it. I shot a wedding two weeks ago but I haven't used my studio lights in ages.

    I need to find a model with a wedding dress who wants to shoot TFP
