@Philreedshikes I've wanted someone to start this topic for a while now! Thanks!

I have a Canon T6 that is my first DSLR camera. I find that it is hard to balance the convenience of my cell phone camera and the ability to take better pictures with the real camera. Do you have advice for learning how to better use the camera I have? Did you purchase accessories? Lenses? Your videos are great, do you use any kind of microphone set up?

I have two younger brothers who went to art school for photography so I always feel like I'm way behind the curve here. Thanks for posting, I'm looking forward to this thread!
