Just a thought,  perhaps you are too loaded down with equipment and looking
too hard for that "great" picture.  Years ago I started with one "old used"
camera, with a 50mm lens.  I loved candid available light shoots,  and then
I bought a "better," camera and a flash.  Trouble,  now my pictures all
"came out"  but they were not interesting.  Without realizing it, I had
changed my style of phorography. Then I bought more lenses, and wasted more
time changing them rather than just gettiing back to basic techniques and
improving my style.  So, my advice is to just go out with a minimum of
equipment and if you are doing color,  maybe try B & W,  or slides.    And
now its 35 years later and I'm still learning.
