Hello! You all seem to be well seasoned and into your photographic prime! I'm a 27 year old just starting out...well about 2 years REALLY INTO the art. I have been working with a pro photographer friend here and there. I am moderately comfortable with terms like ISO, F-STOP etc and I am progressing quickly. The problem is; it seems that my passion and artistic ability is superseding my budget! Friends family and even strangers ask me to do do portraits and some have purchased my prints. Guess what I'm shooting with...A canon power shot SX20is!
What brought me here today is that I am looking to upgrade. I cannot decide between the Rebel T3i or the EOS 60D. I want to be able to do macro, and some portraits in low light (ie; babies, children). I've read many reviews but seem to think that the Rebel will focus for me better (without having to purchase a macro lens at this time). However, I have an old macro lens from an outdated Canon...(quantaray 58mm 1.5m/4.9ft 1:16.5) I'm wondering if that will work on my SLR. So new and so many things to consider when I go SLR...I have people lined up ready for shoots and to let me practice on them. Any advice is welcomed! Thanks in advance!
