    I think you're off to a good start. As you read, photograph, and read some more and photograph some more, you will get better with your technique and equipment.

    I started in the late 70's with manual focus and exposure 35mm cameras. I now use mostly medium format mamiya now but I've just recently started using a digital Pentax now. I've made a little money here and there with little league baseball shots and that's where I really put my "training" to the test. I had auto nothing to help me. But they we're good enough for people to hand over their hard earned money

    Re: Just getting started

    photography can be a good earner, if done with a little bit of commercial brain. i did 35 yrs in photography. black & white and then colour. on the introduction of digital photo... , the things become easier. we did a lot of labour in b&w PHOTOGRAPHY. NOW OWN A D-CAMERA, VIEW THE RESULT ON SCREEN, CHANGE EXPOSURE,IF NECESSARY AND GET 100% top results. but have a pro.dSLR from canon or nikon and get started from your friends, relatives, and give advt in local paper. never compromise on quality whether u have to spend a little more. a standing reputation, once disrupted, takes u nowhere. so best of luck.
