Hey ya'll

Does anyone dabble in photography? I'm looking to pick up the hobby for personal use.

What kind of camera did you start off with? What do you have now? When did you upgrade and why? Did you take any classes? Paid or free? Did you self-teach? What resources did you use, if so?

I would like to start off with a quality but fairly inexpensive camera and learn some cool shooting techniques/editing skills.

I have a Canon rebel. Hubby has the Canon 6d.
I suggest you look for a used canon or nikon to get started. Craigslist has some deals from time to time.

I started with a nikon d5000. nikon has some cool entry level cameras. They are all good. Lens investment is more important than camera body, I think. I shoot 50mm and I am eyeing the 85mm 1.4 next. Shooting with a 35mm gives me a nice wide angle. Love it.

I am self taught, but youtube is the business with free tutorials on everything. I learned how to retouch skin while maintaining texture from youtube.

I have had a canon xti for years and I never use it :'( I have the battery on the charger now I'm trying to get back to it.
I bought the body usedfrom bhphotovideo.com
got my lens for the super low low (like 30 bucks) from this guy on craigslist.

canon lenses seemed cheaper overall than Nikon lenses, which is why I chose canon over Nikon. but I do like how Nikon photos seem warmer than canon photos.

Thanks y'all :-)

I'm looking at the canon d5200 but realized yesterday that I need to read a beginners book before I do anything. All this photography jargon has me confused lol.
