35mm Lens for Shooting Indoor Family Functions

edited March 2013 Posted in » Nikon D5100 Forum
I goofed on my register and registered for the D5100 body only. I went to my local photo shop and told them I was a newbie, just beginning to learn, and he suggested to go with the Tamron 18-200mm lens.

After shooting some family pictures indoors, 10 feet away, with lots of outside lighting, I was kind of disappointed with myself. I realized I have a lot to learn!

I'm also in the budget for another lens and was wondering if a smaller range (35mm) may better for indoor family functions. I'm starting to read the dummies guide for the D5100, so I expect that to help. I'm also shooting more in my free time. Thanks for your time and I hope to hear back!
