You might consider trying something that helped me - a long while back. Buy a prime somewhere in the normal range, anywhere from 28mm - 70mm. Get something you can afford to either put on a shelf later or re-sell. Even a manual focus lens; something from the "A" series will be very affordable.

Then use it - and only that lens. Leave your zooms at home. If your experience is like mine your photography will improve - a lot.

I prefer primes and usually if I don't have a specific destination in mind I'll take just one lens out for the day and just have fun with it.
