The Canon Rebel...a great first professional camera, according to many photographers I have spoken with. It's not my DREAM camera, but it's a good next step.
www.thinkgeek.com, you'll find all sorts of cool stuff like this. This little baby basically allows one to latch on to whatever, even up-side-down, and is really pretty strong...perfect for situations where it's hard to get just the right angle and still get a straight shot.
So, these are the items I am working towards, but I cannot do it alone. If any of you have friends or family that need portraits, still may desire some amazing senior photos to give to their friends, or someone just had a new baby...whatever it is, send them my way! Just copy and paste this web link and you're good to go!
Much thanks, folks. :)
