Hi all, I believe this is my first post! I will begin "Advanced Photojournalism" next semester - in roughly ten days. I currently have a Canon Digital Rebel XT, a Tamron 28-300, and a 580EX speedlight -once it gets back from repair! I also have a smaller, slightly less capable flash that I am going to use anyway, simply because I need it. I also have the problem of not really knowing where or when I will be shooting. My college does not have the best lighting in many of it's rooms and I will have to take sports photos and portraits during the course. I have tested, albeit possibly unnecessary, a Tamron 17-85 f/2.8 lens and successfully spoiled myself with a Canon 17-85 IS. Do you think a low fixed aperture or image stabilization are necessart to get great pictures indoors? The optical quality, of course, also needs to be good. What does everyone recommend? Feel free to recommend anything BUT an L lens - including the kit lens, whatever YOU think works.
