  • My husband and I are partial to Canon. If you're thinking of doing portraits you'll need a studio (room) with different colored/patterned backdrops, you'll need lighting, track and movable, software I don't know. You're looking at a BARE MINIMUM of $5,00-$10,000 for camera and all vital equipment.

  • I love Canon cameras!!! I have one and it's the best I have had. It takes great pictures. I know I need to upgrade, but can't afford it right now. I have an 8.0 megapixl and have been complimented on my pictures as to how well they turn out. I think that's going to be my xmas give to myself this year... lol I like to do outside photos because they just look better to me. I also have a feature on my camera to be able to change the color. I would love to get into it professionally as well. I would also love to learn how to develop my own film too.
