    This might get you thinking...

    If you had a manual focus 35 [size=2](oh, let's say a Minolta X700), [/size]a 35-70 mm lens, tripod and $250.00 buring a hole in your pocket, what would you buy to help capture some really cool images???

    Setting and subject ideas???

    A 35 or 50mm fast prime lens, and leave the zoom behind.

    A polarizer, yellow, and red filters. The prime lens is also a really good recommendation. When I shoot 35mm I rarely use anything but my 50mm 1.4. You can never go wrong with film.

    Happy shooting.

    If you want the upmost quality possible - prime lenses and film.
    If you do not demand top optical quality - film and a ticket (or full gas tanks).

    Ah, and don't forget you have to print that film.

    I'd engage a model... Buy $50 or so worth of film... I have my own studio ... probably some left over for lunch afterwards.

    I don't think you have to travel to find something interesting or nice to take a picture of it. To knowledge of place (and people) where you live your everyday life is the biggest advantage you can have. And I prefer prime lens too, but technical aspects are usually secondary….
