Hello there, let me start this off by saying that I have had SOME experience with DSLR cameras, Nikons. My dad and Uncle both did some hobbyist photography and I've used a D3200 and D800 before and done some shots of my own for a family wedding, nothing really good I had a very basic understanding of ISO and shutter speed but beyond that -- stuff like lighting and how to get the best shot I had no idea, nor did I know much about the cameras I was using or which cameras are the best. Anyway I'm a huge car fan and I've been to a lot of car shows and I had an interest in photography but stopped doing anything or learning because I was busy with exams and starting college, now I'm in my second year of college I've been looking to getting back into it, but this time, automotive but I have no idea where to start. So my question is this: What's an ideal camera for this? Since we no longer own the DSLR's I'd used before I can't use them. Is a D3200 okay? I don't mind spending more so long as I have something that would be ideal for what I need it for whether it's entry-level photography or I get better and start doing more serious shots. As well as this, any other tips for getting started with photography from pretty much scratch? Also, next year I will be in Australia for 6-7 weeks visiting my sister and I'd love to take some beautiful photos of the cars, landscape and such there so I was planning on buying a good camera again anyway. I would show some of the photos I took last time I used my dad's SLR but I don't have them anymore, but they were pretty much just point and shoot. I didn't spend much time thinking about angles, light, ISO, shutter speed etc. and that's what I'd like to learn more about this time round. It'd be so cool to be an automotive photographer for a magazine or something some day. Update: Found some old photos, can upload them if needed.
