I realize that saying "You take such great pictures...what camera do you have?" is akin to telling an amazing cook "This dish is delicious...what kind of pan do you use?"
The skills are more important than the tool. But I'd like to learn some of those skills and improve my photography a little, more than I can do with my automatic point and shoot and my camera phone.
But at the same time, perhaps a huge DSLR with tons of changeable lenses may not be quite right for me either. I'm not looking to become a professional photographer for sure.
Do you have any advice that can help me out?
