Aside from my camera itself, I hadn’t bought any other gadgets like lenses, or flashes, etc. yet. But I just ordered and received my first purchase, and I’m so excited about it! Upon my instructor’s suggestion, I purchased a cannon 50 mm, 1.8 lens. (I will add a couple photos of the lens later).
The 50 mm, 1.8 lens is physically smaller, but the opening of the lens is much larger, and allows for more light. It’s much more ideal for flash portrait photography, which is the type I’m most interested in. I played with it quickly one day, and already like what I’m seeing. Excited to try it out more!
