Oooh. My suggestion: purchase a used Speedlite from the "Selling" forum, and get started on off-camera flash work. There's a whole world there to investigate, and the dark times are good for that.
Read through the Speedlite forum, especially the "stickied" posts. There's a wealth of knowledge to get you started.
