Julie: Canon's 50mm f/1.4 lens is perfect for taking pictures in low light without a flash. It's especially awesome for portraits because you can use it indoors and outdoors without worrying about whether you've got enough light to take your shot. It'll let you throw backgrounds out of focus, so you can really draw attention to your subject. And it's also compact and easy to carry around, which makes it especially useful as a portrait lens.
