adventures in photography

I've been trying to get comfortable with my camera these past few weeks. When I stated researching cameras and lenses and all that jazz it was really confusing and frustrating not knowing very much about any of it. I didn't know what to buy or what lenses to choose and it's all pretty intimidating because you're investing your money into it.. and not just a little but.. like a LOT. For me at least!

All I knew was that most of the photographers I admire use Canon cameras and all recommend similar lenses. So I started there. I bought the Canon 60D EOS to start out. So far I like it a lot but I haven't learned very much about it yet and I'm honestly too scared to start screwing with the IOS settings etc. I'm still completely lost as to what kinds of lenses I need or will use the most but I suppose its a shoot and miss kind of situation. For now I'm using a Canon EF 50mm lens as my go to (and only) lens. I realized very quickly what all the things I'd read about wide angle lenses were about after using this lens. You can NOT capture a wide image with this lens haha. 

What lenses do you shoot with? I'm open to recommendations about which lens to go with next. I'm stumped.
