    Hello everyone,
    I am new to the group and new to the field of photography. I took digital photography class as part of my undergrad studies, and i fell in love in street photography.
    I was wondering if anyone can share with me some good sites that i can learn all about cameras, lenses and photography.
    I am also in the process of searching to purchase a lens for my canon rebel XT (mainly for street photography with a good zoom range). I want to be able to take zoomed in pics from far away, and blurry background. do you have any suggestions ( i am not fixed on canon lenses only, any brand that can fit the camera and be cheaper is even better - since i am a beginner, i want something that produces good quality pics yet not too expensive.

    That's going to be hard to accomplish because the farther away the camera is from the subject, the deeper the DOF becomes. Anything near the subject will be in focus, in front and in back.
    What is expensive to you? What is the most you would be willing to spend on a long lens?
