I feel like the photography thing is starting to click a little bit, but I'm wondering if I'm making it harder than it really is?
I mainly take pictures of my kids and friend's kids--so I'm wondering if there is a better way to focus than by recomposing--I feel like a lot of times I'm so busy trying to recompose that I miss the cute smile or expression. Is there another good way of getting good focus? (am I making sense here?)
Also, I see everyone raving about the Tamron 28-75 2.8. There happens to be one for sale on craigslist for $275...which from looking around seems kind of cheap. How can I be sure that this lens hasn't be dropped or beat up? I'd love to purchase it since I take mainly portraits of people but don't want to buy someone else's garbage.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
