Photography Question 
patricia E. Weekly
 

New to the hobby. What to buy...


I am just now getting very interested in serious photography. I am a digital camera junkie, having had at least 6 or more. (lost count). I have a Nikon S10 P&S and a Sony F828 camera for my more creative "work". But, I would really like to get into the digital SLR category. I am used to 8MP on my sony, so I don't want to go down in quality but also don't want to over-buy either. So, if you had a birthday coming up and a willing husband to pretty much buy you what you want within reason, what would you get? Also, what lighting kit would you buy assuming I know nothing about that but would like to play with backdrops and portrait photography of my kids and some of my dancers (I am a dance teacher). Thanks so much.

  Well Tricia,
I would suggest that you look at the Studio Photography Threads and take a look what others have started with and thier results.
There are those using everything from Photogenic to Britek and Alien Bee.
and Cameras from Sonys to Nikon D200 ect.
I myself use Nikno D70, D200 and Fuji S2.
I have owned Britek, Calumet (Bowens) and Photogenic.
I usually recommend Britek and Photogenic depending on hte amount one wants to pay.
I do hope this helps, email if you need more info.
Wishing you the very best in all yoru ventures,
Debby Tabb
