I'm entertaining the idea of taking my first paying gig. Recently I purchased a 580exII, as I know how important this is to proper indoor photography, but I am pretty sure my equipment could use an upgrade if I am going to be the sole photographer at a wedding. If you had my bag of equipment, would you add a 40D or 24-70 L (2.8) lens? I am planning to spend my fee for the engagement on equipment, as I told myself last year that I would not spend any more money on my rig unless I started to make money using it.
I will already have a few descent backup lenses and a 400D body as a spare during the event. I may choose to shoot with the 400D and use the 350D as backup. Also what equipment would you recommend I rent for the occasion if necessary?
Thanks. I also posted about the event in the knowledge share section. This question is meant to focus on the equipment decision. Wedding is in 1 year.
