Thank you I have a sony nex 6, it's a little mirrorless camera, but has a entry level DSLR sensor, great camera for me to learn on, still debating on canon or nikon when it's time to up grade @sanityscout.
It's great that you have a group you can meet up with and actually take pictures together; I'd love to see the different images and angels you all capture in comparison to each other (comparison is something I love to do with my writing friends). @photogandy I think my favorite is the 7th image; the composition is great.
I'm thinking about getting a camera myself, but not sure where to start. I don't want to overspend when I'm still an amateur. Right now I just use my phone - but it's amazing how good phone photos can be these days!
