Next step?

So I've had my DSLR for a little over a year, only used it off and on for the first few months. These past 6-8 months or so, I've been trying to practice a bit more. Nothing special, just a Canon T3 (as entry level as it gets), with a 50 mm 1.8. I rarely ever use the kit lens, unless I'm shooting indoors, or for something at school. Everything else, I use the 50.

Really looking to take the next step and embrace this hobby more. Planning on taking a photography class at my university next quarter before I graduate just to learn a bit more. I really want a focal lens next. Kinda leaning towards a Tamron 28-75 or a Sigma 8-16, probably the Tamron.

Oh, and I just got Lightroom, so I'm gonna start messing with that a little bit as well. Any critique is welcome!

Any tips/pointers? A couple of buddies are gonna let me shoot their cars in the next couple of weeks, so I'm excited for my first amateur 'shoot'.

So Amaze
