Hi everyone. I've always liked taking pictures, and now I'm ready to take the next step to becoming a photographer as a hobby. However, I know next to nothing about professional equipment and stuff like that. What type of stuff would I need? Is it worth it to become a photographer? I would really like for this to become a hobby of mine, and as I look at the pictures on this board it amazes me that people can take these. Any tips for a beginner would be helpful, too. Thanks.
