I have loved photography because I gain a sense of fulfillmentbeyond the aesthetic satisfaction derived from a picture; it leaves a story I can tell, something representative of the human condition, something I can bequeath my audience and myself forever. Ive been an amateur photographer all my life and I was wondering if the photography community could help me out here. Ive been taking pictures with my noobie Canon Powershot SD 750. I have never done postprocessing/photshopping any of my photographs either. I decided that I want to move up a stepmoving into DSLR/high-end camera territory. I have absolutely no idea on what cameras to buy, what filters to get and most importantly, what lens to buy. I have no idea on choosing what is the best exposure time and all that jargon for taking quality photos (although I know it may depend on the photograph itself). Here is the quality of some photos I want to take in the future (these are not mine, but I want to take pics like these) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v398/toomahs/Lens Flair/070608224559_by_EntrezSansFrapper.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v398/toomahs/Lens Flair/BMW_335___FIRE_IT_UP_by_dejz0r.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v398/toomahs/Lens Flair/551fff28f840ffe0.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v398/toomahs/Lens Flair/Tunnle_of_thoughts_by_kobyharati.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v398/toomahs/Lens Flair/Three_Maserati__s_by_TVRfan.jpg If someone can take some time, if anyone, may you please advise me on me transcendence?
