Just curious, but what is your goal with photography? Do you want to become a: Portrait Photographer? (Business/Second Income/Hobby) Wedding Photographer? (Business/Second Income/Hobby) Art Photographer? Fashion Photography? Stock Photography? Photo-Journalist? (as a profession) Scrapbooking? Sports Photographer? (Pro/Hobby serving the community) Take better pictures? (travel/family/events) Other? As a side question, do you have any background in the arts beyond High School? Any formal education in art/design? My goal is to be an art photographer, and my immediate goal is to have a show in an art gallery by the middle of next year. I look at it as a possible second income. My partner is a picture framer, and this gives me some in roads to Interior Designers and gallery owners. My education in the arts started when I was very young and still continues, and when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, my answer was always an 'Artist'. Working with metal became my passion, and now own my own Jewelery Shop. So, what about you?
