Hi! I started off assisting for a wedding photographer last year. After my first wedding assisting her, she allowed me to take photos strictly for practice. After two weddings she loved my practice work and asked me to be her regular second shooter for this year (yay!) My question is regarding my equipment. I shoot with a Canon 7D, and my only non-kit lens is a 50mm f/1.4. I own two kit lenses - an 18-55mm and a 75-300mm. I know it's important as a second shooter to have a nice variety of shots. I'm concerned that my 50mm won't give me that nice variety. I'd love to just use my kit lenses, but I'm afraid that they won't be fast or sharp enough for the weddings. I do NOT have money to spend on new equipment. I have either the option of buying a more inexpensive lens or renting a nicer one. That being said, would a Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 be a good choice for me? Are there other lenses that would be decent for second shooting weddings on a crop sensor? Or should I just rent a lens like the Canon 24-70 f/2.8 II? The primary photographer is well aware of the equipment I currently own, and she hired me this year on the basis of the work I showed her from the weddings I assisted her with last year. She's not asking me to upgrade, but I really feel like I need to. I want to make sure I can provide the highest quality images possible, but I don't want my equipment to hold me back. Any help is greatly appreciated!
