Smile Hi There...

I just stumbled upon this great community and after a few hours of reading various posts I am really excited about joining. I gave up work last year, spent 12 months of soul searching as to where I wanted to go w/ my life and am now doing a full time photography course at Limerick Snr College, it's a 2 year diploma course, as long as I can get through 1st year!

I bought a 350D a few years ago but now am considering upgrading to a new 40 or 50D or maybe a 2nd hand 5D. I have found the forum on "what camera to buy" very useful, though am still undecided, worried that if I buy the 40/50D will I want to upgrade again in a few years. Anyway this post was supposed to be just an intro, it's nearly 2am and I should be in bed. I resume my posting and gallery upload tomorrow.

Re: Hi There...

Welcome to Pixalo Deborah

Upgrading is never easy, and nowadays cameras are like every other electronic product inasmuch as they are out of date as soon as you walk out of the shop. Frequently the 'improvements' are things you can do without, so provided you choose well you should be able to get a reasonable working life from whatever model you choose.

Re: Hi There...

Hi Ya,

Firstly many thanks for your valuable suggestions.
I shall work it out to buy a suitable model, which suffices my current photographic needs and as this electronic world is vulnerable to upgradation, I will pin down the best available model then.

Cheers
Vamsee

Re: Hi There...

Thank you for your feedback to my shots, they are very encouraging, we all need encouragement. At the moment I am having a photographic block, I spent lots of time last weekend trying to capture used gun cartridges lined up on a shelf in a derelict school house in Wexford, why were they there, who put them there... etc, trying to capture the image that would make the viewer ask these questions. I have taken shots of them over the past 3 visits to my parents, who live nearby, haven't nailed it yet. I might post one of them to gallery for your advice but pls be gentle with me! Will go to correct forum first. Deb
