Hi everyone, I have always loved to take pictures but have never really gotten into it. After a little bit of thinking I said to myself maybe I should get a decent camera, then i realized i don't know anything about photography.I have a 5.1 Mega pixel digital camera i picked up for 80 bucks, I'm sure you can only imagine the quality. I would assume the first step would be to get a decent camera. I have money so that in the long run i could buy another if I get into it but right now I don't want to spend to much. I don't really care weather it's film or digital. Here what I am looking for, something of decent quality- Doesn't have to be outstanding but will last till i know where I want to go with this. Versatility- I am a very big fan of the outdoors and love taking pictures of stuff in the wood, but i also would like something that will work everywhere. Durable- As I said I love the outdoors so something that is not very delicate is important. Cost- As I said I don't want to spend to much, I'm gonna say up to $150 when all is said and done, don't know how reasonable that is. Also can any of you guide me to some introduction to photography and methods, styles, and whatnot. Thanks guys, sorry if i sound like an idiot, I really don't know anythign about this.
