Beginner, wanting to step up the experience!
I am new to this community and really looking to find someone to take photography mentorship from. I purchased my Canon 70D brand new when it was released several years ago. At the time, I was playing around with automotive photography with only my f/1.8 50mm and felt my shots getting better and better over time. I ended up picking up a f/2.8 24mm not too long after and couldn't quite find my footing. Last week I picked up an 18-135mm off of a 80D at my local family owned camera shop. I'm loving the versatility in comparison to my prime lenses but now that I have a fair range to play with I want to tap into some experience others have to know exactly what potential there is for this camera and lenses, while developing my own ability.
Admittedly, when I bought my camera I knew nothing about cameras or photography. I watched videos on YouTube to find what would be the best for the price point I was willing to spend. Looking back with a little more knowledge, I feel some buyers remorse in the sense that I spent $1,000 on an APS-C sensor body. In any case, I know that with enough experience and the right eye anything can make some stunning photography.
I appreciate any feedback and welcome coaching. Adding a few of my pictures here.
