Here is another truth: a new camera or lens or editing software will never make you a better photographer. It might make it a little easier to achieve what you are trying to do, but it will never make you better.

Because photography is about vision and nothing else.
Instead of spending time and money on new equipment, spend that time and money learning how to make better photographs. That will improve your photography.
The image above was captured using a Holga camera. If you are unfamiliar with Holga, it's a cheap and simple camera from China. It's the complete opposite of a new DSLR, yet it can be used to create great photographs in the hands of a skilled photographer.
