Ok here is the jist of it. So im still working with the default lens that came with my canon xti. I really want another lens just bc i know the default ones suck but I have NO idea what type of lens to get. Im only 19 and still in school meaning I dont have tons of money to spend on lenses. I want some cheap, afforable that still will do a good job on photos. I photography mostly portraits, children, fashion, preganancys, weddings. small things to get me starting since i am in the process of starting my own business. I do some landscapes just because they are easier to do seeing as I dont always have models for fashion shoots(which is eventually my main focus). And overall I want something that would be able to comply as much as possible with what I am looking for. Im looking for something between the 200-400$ range. Any tips or anything, PLEASE let me know. I want another lens as soon as I can get one. Thanks guys in advance.
