I'm new to the community and well...photography itself. Right now, I have a simple Kodak digital camera I purchased at Walmart a few months ago. I took a few pictures of flowers while I was visiting the New Orleans' Botanical Gardens and it really got me interested in photography. Now, I'm just curious where to start. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for a good beginner's camera. I want to do still life and pictures of my family. I was told you get a Nikon d60 or higher. I'm not sure that is right and also I'm not sure which lens to get.
Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated. And if this isn't allowed in the comm, I apologize.
