I want to educate myself and am immersing myself in everything photography-related. I'm picking up the concepts fast because I was a physics major in college (and thus have some background in optics) and am good with math.
For practice I offer free event, wedding, whatever photography, and can't get enough, plus I make loads of people happy who would otherwise not have photos of their events.
I want to diversify my lens arsenal (fast), and wanted to know how I can best come up to speed on lenses, their various attributes, and what they mean as far as how they translate to real world photos.
Does anyone have a simple quick-start guide on the subject?
I'm looking to solve some holes in my photo-taking and am find conflicting info on the web. Some say 50mm is good for landscapes and portraits, others say 75-200 is their go-to for weddings and events. I'm trying to make sense of all this and get it clear in my head to the point I can make the correct selection in my next lens purchase.
Mainly, I'm looking for in-home or restaurant events — so, low light, people, and motion are involved. I'm a Nikon D7000 user.
Help me help myself....
