Hey everyone just a quick hello. Mother and farmers wife living in southern alberta. Im new to photographty mostly. Ise a Canon P&S currently. I shot with a pentax 35mm in highschool and some ad copy work straight out but my memory is short and Im planning on purchasing a new DSLR at the end of the month and get back into it. I am currently debating between a Nikon D90 with an 18mm-105 VR lens (kit lens) and then getting a 50mm to complement it or the Canon Rebel T2i 18mm to 55mm kit lense and then getting another lens to complement. I want a camera that will last me for a couple years to learn the art and function capability of my camera in manual mode. I have small children so will want something that does great portrait work and probably will want something that has good macro capabilty. Now my husband wants me to get some good farming shots also so something scenic. I know tonnes of variety scale here haha. Any advice from the seasoned experts is appreciated.
