Hi! I'm a total newbie to photography- I'm the kid of person who takes pictures of friends, and that's about it. However, I'm really, really interested in getting into photography. I ride horses, and am beginning to start my own buisness. However, being able to photograph horses would be a HUGE asset to me. We have a family camera, and it's great, but my problem is the long delay time. I'm needing to take some action shots, and while there's been plenty of opportunities, I always just miss them, because my camera's too slow. I'm looking for a beginner-friendly camera for a reasonable price (under $1000 would be nice). It needs to have a quick start-up time (I think that's what you call it...) and also have a good image quality, since Photoshop is my hobby, and working with low-quality images is like hell. I have an awesome base of friends who kindly let me use their photography as stock, but I'd like to be able to supply for myself, too. If anyone has any suggestions for me, it'd be a HUGE help. Thanks!!
