Firstly, I love all your photos! Some of your siggy pics are adorable
I am looking to get into photography, mainly as a hobby and because I'd like to be able to take pictures of DD and love the way the photo turns out.
What do I need to start? Obviously, a camera helps HA, but does it need to be a proper one with the different lenses etc or can you start with a normal one? For example, I want a Lumix but it's just a 'normal' camera. However it takes really crisps pictures.
Also, what else would I need? Software on my computer? How do you develop your pictures? In store or in the basement like you see on TV?
As you can probably guess, I haven't a clue so any and all advise would be great
