I'm currently working to create photo refs with my Canon T3 Digital SLR.
My personal interest is, mostly, in nature photography, first, and general refs for my cartooning interests, second.
I'm looking to create an ongoing thread where those striving to produce refs for art can discuss their personal knowledge and experience with photography.
As a potential topic starter, I'm considering purchasing Canon's 70mm/200mm (non-IS) zoom which is considered to be a pretty dang good lens for the money beyond the issue "kit lens" that comes with the camera.
What is YOUR knowledge? What are YOUR experiences with photography?
