Guys, I just found my passion today in photography, I found it! It just hit me.
May 10, 2014

Lately ive been having a struggle getting out and shooting, but ive only used and own my 18-55STM kit lens. Well today I was set to shoot an event with about 250 people and I decided I would go all out and rent a better grade lens.  So after some advice from others, I rented a 17-55m 2.8 Canon, and shot the event today. I immediately could tell the improvement from the kit lens.  Its like as if before with my kit lens, my camera was a toy, now its a beast.

All I have to say is WOW, I have found my passion!  I stuck on another lens and all of a sudden shooting is THAT much more fun.  I havent had this much fun, I dont think ever.

About an hour in, it finally hit me deep inside....I know exactly what kind of photography tickles my fancy....I love shooting people!  I dont know if its the attention or what, but I just get a huge thrill off it.  I had so much fun and honestly....I really REALLY didnt want to return the rented lens after.  It was so hard to put back on the kit lens, felt like such a downgrade.

Infact bad idea because I now so want to buy a 17-55m 2.8 to keep.  I just dont think i could ever go back to my kit lens.  The 17-55m 2.8 makes the kit lens feel like a toy.

I dont know how ive settled for using the kit lens for so long.

But man, only thing is the price of the lens.    its steep.
