Do you like taking photos all the time?
Do you enjoy taking photos of people as well as landscapes and nature?
Do you find yourself wishing you had a camera with you all the time?
Do you have a friend with a DSLR and have a tiny bit of camera envy?
Do you walk by the camera section of the store and stop to see different cameras and lenses and wish they cost less?
But, this is just establishing your interest in taking photos and wanting to continue taking photos.
I'm sure I'm not the first to say that photography has very little to do with picking up a new camera and lens and becoming good.
Photography is a whole new way of thinking and seeing the world. Its about finding the right light and finding a very flattering yet real way of showing something. Its sharing what you see with others and knowing that your unique taste and eye put it all together.
And its telling yourself that you will learn how to operate a camera, and spend tons of hours practicing, and improving. That when you get stuck and quite can't figure out a concept or it "just doesn't like how I want it to" and push forward to find out why.
To anyone who think they will pick up a camera and just go, is not being realistic. But, it is a start.
And the fact that you're ready to purchase a DSLR is just the beginning. Some folk buy one and keep it on AUTO for years as photos generally come out well. But, there are others who dive into settings and what can this do attitude.
Operating photography equipment requires skill. Taking a good photo requires a good eye. And combining the two takes a lot of practice.
If you have read through this whole post you may be ready for a DSLR.
