Learn to love the lenses your have. Shoot them often, be a scientist and experiment with them. Discover how the image will change depending on your point of focus. Use it wide open (largest aperture), closest focus, or stopped down (smallest aperture). By experimenting with your optics, you will know how they respond when you need to get “the” shot!
