    So I've done a year of college to get my counseling degree, but photography has still been my passion so I figured I have one life and I'm going to pursue it (wish me luck :] )


    I don't have too much of a plan and don't know where to start... the only plan I have is my take workshops, classes, read books, etc basically anything to just absorb myself in photography and gain all the knowledge to start building a portfolio and work up. My friend said she would let me use her pentax k100d (I believe?) so I dont have to front money and i can save up for a camera, lenses, etc.


    So any information would be sooo helpful.... Im excited to know that Im going to have something of my own :)

    Now that's a great plan!!!! perfect.. don't change it... definitely don't get blinded by blowing all you money on expensive "pro" equipment. Focus on the photography... you'll known when and what you need as time goes on.
