Hi, I'm a college student who isn't the richest cat on the block, but i work so i make money. I recently purchased a macbook and heard that its the choice for professionals in photography, video and audio, so I thought I might try photography as a side hobby (i don't study that much). If the MR Community could help me with a few questions, i'd be grateful. 1) What are your recommendations for a beginner's camera? I prefer a Digital SLR and was considering the Rebel EOS XT or something like that. Nothing extravagantly expensive like $800+ 2) What are some good resources for learning about photography like depth of vision or such. (Techniques and such) 3) What are some good programs for editing photos, I tried iPhoto and couldn't really do much. I tried to take a picture and put it as my wallpaper without it looking stretched. Didn't work, that is the extent of my skill. haha. TIA!
