Hello from Arkansas

Hello, my name is Sherry. I am a singe mom returning to school to finish up my education with a minor in photography. I am taking a lighting course this semester, mainly for portraits and still lifes. I use a Pentax K-7 and I am looking for some advise on a new lens. Nice to be here!

Welcome aboard - look in the techniques area for portrait advice and the lens are as well.

You don't necessarily need a very expensive lens to be successful for this use.

Welcome, I'm sure clever folk here can help you with your lens choice, I can then encourage you to spend the money.
