help please, I'm out of time
Hopefully someone out there can help me.
I have earned a $1000 teaching award from my college, but must spend the $$ on equipment and it must be done in the next two weeks! I love photography and would like to buy a camera to grow into. My problem...I dont know anything about lenses (I have been reading, but its overload). I need a lens to use on a copystand to shoot student work-close up and detail, and one for general use-pictures of kids, events. I do understand the importance of a good lens, but I need to figure out where to cut some costs.
I will likely buy a Canon, and I realize that $1000 wont get me far, but I am willing to add to that. Any help is appreciated!
