"what kind of camera/lens do you have? Where did you learn photography?"
I currently own a Nikon D80 and a Nikon D70, with a f/2.8 70-200 zoom lens, f/4.5-5.6 70-300 zoom lens, and a f/3.4-5.6 18-80 lens.
As far as where I learned...
I've done a lot of reading and study on my own. I also took a week long photography course in Dallas, Texas through the Institute of Photographic Studies. (And if you are hoping to learn more about photography, I can't recommend this highly enough! Outstanding courses taught by photographers who not only excel at their work, but are sold out for God, too.)
If you don't have extensive amounts of time or resources to invest, I'd recommend these free online photography courses. A lot of basics are covered, but it is excellent material. A few of their courses are entitled:
Beyond the Basics
An amateur photographer was invited to dinner with friends and he took along a few pictures to show to them. The hostess looked at the photos and commented, "These are very good! You must have a good camera." The photographer didn't make any comment, but as he was leaving to go home, he said, "That was a really delicious meal! You must have some very good pots." [smile]
For my readers who enjoy photography -- what camera and equipment do you use? Do you have any advice you could share for someone who is camera shopping?
