    Howdy!

    I started my photography "career" as a child with a 110 Instamatic. After expressing an interest in taking "real" pictrures, my dad handed me his Canon Pellix and told me to figure out how to use it. After 25+ years of faithful service, it is still going strong, but ... I would like to finally enter the 21st century and update to a DSLR.

    I am looking at the Canon Rebel XTi as a replacement. I also realize that the lenses that have served me so well all these years won't work on whatever new camera I buy, so I will also need new lenses (and probably a new flash, etc.). And, I realize that PhotoShop will most likely be part of my future, so I will have to learn all about that, too.

    My goal is to upgrade my equipment and skills so I can start making money in the photography field (as soon as I find my niche).

    I'm looking forward to meeting you all and sharing ideas.

    Heya Kara, welcome to ThePhotoForum.
    So have you made up your mind as to what to get to "enter the 21st century" ;).
    And is there a possibility for you to scan some of your prints from the Pellix-times and show us?
