JBake, if you have a Canon DSLR, check out the 50mm F/1.8, 85mm F/1.8, or 50mm F/1.4 (I'll leave out the L because if you're still learning those 3 should be just fine). The 50mm F/1.8 is a great lens for the price, at F/1.8 it provides the bokeh you'd want as well as the sharpness and its only ~$75. The only problem you're going to have with it is the AF hunts like crazy, which is why you might want to look at the 50mm F/1.4 or the 85mm F/1.8 (depending on the focal length you're going for) those primes are great lenses for the price! =]
Very good advice.
I had an 85 1.8 and it's a great lens.
The 100 f2.0 is also great for telephoto prime lens.
On a 30D, the 50 1.4 will have the angle of view of about a 65mm.
It's a nice walk around lens and can get you close this quality.
