Canadian Photographer Chris Nicholls (Not to be confused with Chris Niccolls of DPReview) shoots for magazines like Marie Claire, FASHION, and in this video, Dress To Kill.

When it comes to saving money, vintage lenses are often a fantastic option, generally coming with unique looks that are difficult if not impossible to recreate in post.
When it comes to building out your kit, there is the eternal quandary. Constant lights or strobes? What are the advantages of each? What are the disadvantages of each?

It's incredibly common to see any marketing campaign talk about how some accessory or lens is "life changing" and will bring your photography to the next level.
