I would love a little help if possible.
I am aiming to get into portrait work, but not just of single people, but of couples and new couples with babies.
I am utterly stuck as to what lens to choose though, and I am planning on adding a couple of lenses to my collection.
My current setup: Canon 450D, twin kit lens (the standard of which I am sure you are all familiar with), Tamron 60mm f/2.0 macro.
Now, I've used the Tamron for candid portrait shots and it's fabulous...however, the speed of focusing is slow due to it being primarily a macro - I love the DOF it gives me however.
My shortlist is:
Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM
Canon 85mm f/1.8 USM
Canon 70-200 f/2.8L USM
I'm finding it really hard deciding what to go for...or what combination of lenses would be best for me.
I want something that would be good for both indoors and outdoors in the countryside, etc...
would love any constructive feedback.
please be mindful of the crop factor when suggesting which lens I should go for.
