Photography is one of my hobbies but due to the costs associated with it, I do not have/own the best of gear.
I have a 6 MP Canon DSLR with an 18-55 II lens and a 75-300 III f4/5.6 lens. I also own a wired release button and non-high quality tripod.
For my full time job, I travel a lot through the rural country and often more than not I come across older bridges, homes, or buildings (100-300 year range). These houses usually have character and charm.
Given my equipment, how can I maximize my photo taking experience (composition, settings, my location from the building, sun, snow, etc)?
As a note, my budget for new gear is about $100
