Hello all, My name is jake and I am new to the forum. I am an armature photographer and am looking at making it more of just a hobby. I'm sure some if not most of you have heard of photodex software proshow. I did software support for them for quite some time and got a bug for taking photos. I have set up a web page with some of my better photos, but am always looking to build my portfolio. I am always accepting criticism as other peoples experience I believe will always help. I currently only have a canon A520 that I am using, but am looking for a better camera. Any suggestions??? I am leaning towards the canon EOS 40D.
