obviously my skill level isnt where it needs to be to open a photography business. this is why i have come to this forum to ask what camera can "grow" with me. i want opions of those on here who dont mind helping me find a good fit for my needs. I need to buy a camera to practice with while I attend various classes and training sessions. I am pretty confident I can buy a camera to learn with and later use it in my business after i have mastered my skill.
and as far as my passion goes...if i wanted to chase $$$ i wouldnt be opening a part-time photo business.
