Right now things in my country, specially my city aren't that good for outdoors shooting. I'm from Mexico, some of you may be aware of how the violence is increasing in the country (at least from the news), so taking a dslr outside is not that a good idea unless you are shooting a wedding or another event, but since my interest outdoors is for landscapes, buildings and people, I'm really affraid some one would approach and take my camera away, either a rober or a soldier (things have come this far, trust me, I'm not going over the fence with this).
So I'm restrained to shoot indoors in my office/studio and obviously in my own home, and family events. So I thought about getting more creative with macro and portraits.
I have to be straight, don't have enough for a macro lens, or even for a close up lens like the canon 250 or 500. I know the quality with close up filters may not be as good, but I want to learn, experiment, and in time I can get something better.
I have a canon, so my question is, which is better, to keep my kit lens and get some close up filters or go for a 50 1.8, which will also help me indoors (low light conditions) and with portraits and the close up filters?? wouldn't the 50 1.8 be kind of restrictive for focusing, or is the kit lens better option because of the zoom???
thanks in advance
