Hey everyone! I am really trying to expand my knowledge in Photography, and I really want to do a part-time job in the summer as a photographer for events, etc. I am thinking of purchasing a DSLR, and I do have a little bit of experience with a T3 (but I am going to sell the T3 for a T3i), and I was wondering if anyone can offer me some tips. I do know the basics to Photoshop, etc. Some things I'd like to know are... -Is this a good idea? I have been taking photos for over 4 years with a Point and Shoot (I am a HighSchool student right now). -Should I shoot photos in RAW or JPEGs? -Will I need to buy an external flash (Silly question, but I've seen the internal flash on the T3i do wonders) -What kind of lens would I need (I will be getting the usual 18-55mm Lens). Thank you for all the answers in advance.
