My favorite photography accessory (lights, modifier, bag, tripod) is
Hmmm...Not really a photographer so I would have to say that my camera strap is my favorite accessory. Why? because its keeps the camera out of my way without having to put it down. ;-)
I’ve learned the most from..

My most-used Photoshop add-on, plugin, action set (etc) is
