    Whats up, Iam looking into getting into Photography, I am currently looking at Nikon Camara's Specificlly the D90 and D300, My friend has a Nikon But not sure of the model number I really like his Camara's, Its got SLR capabilty also. so that's cool. Some of you guy's may prefer something else other then those camaras because they can be pretty pricey. some may recommend Canon some may recommend Nikon or some other brand like Sony or HP something along those line's Sof if you guys could help me out that would be awsome. Maybe if i get good at it I could start a Business and may get hired to take picture's at sporting event's wedding's or any other occasion that may pop up in the near future or just for ****'s and giggle's lol. Ive been on many car forum's and alot of guys like using HDR imaging etc. and some of them come out really awsome. So after seeing this all the time I decided why not sign up on a Photography forum and learn a thing or two.

    get your wallet ready and its very addictive but fun.

    But dont think you can become a "PRO" easily....some of these guys have been doing this forever and I havent been doing it that long but i have some good photographers helping me along the way...I learn something new everyday, and i know that i am a long way away from even considering referring to myself as professional.

    And i would say you cant go wrong with Nikon or canon....Research them and go to a camera shop and hold them and see what one your most comfortable with.

    Welcome to the site.
    I used to take pictures of cars, now I photograph cars. That's also not the only thing I shoot, I now shoot everything.
