Hello Josh, welcome to the world of photography.

Your shots showed potential, and the ideas you have to create them.

 

Photography is basically the capturing of lights. Learn to control lighting and you can be the master of it. Of course, composition is equally important too so make a photo interesting/unique to capture the audiences' interest

You will need to use a good flash if the subject is back facing the sun, if not the subject will always be under expose.

as i had just started out photography, can you guide me as to what are the basic essential equipment that I have to bring around? I have a 14-42mm lens, 40-150mm and a tripod. do i need a flower hood and a good flash?

U need better lens. To me, photography depends very much on the glasses. Since you like landscape shot I'd recommended the 7-14 f4 ultra wide angle lens. But if you want a all rounder lens which is good for almost everything then go for the 12-35 f2.8.

Both lens cost around $1.3k each.

For flash, get the fl600. It's a small and powerful little beast.

You will also need ND filters for long exposure shots.
