Hello! My name is Carol and I have a love for this hobby. I started at the age of 18 with a cheesy yashika 35mm and have stepped up to my new digital camera. I take sheer joy in taking photos of almost anything that catches my eye. Macro is a passion of mine. I am in the process of starting my own home business (slowly) and would welcome advise from people who have been doing this a lot longer than me. What type of equipment do I need to do it professionally? That's the burning question today. All are welcome because I like constructive criticism.
