    Never tried it before, i've taken snapshots but never done anything really photo(graphic?) related.

    Seems like a nice little hobby to take up.

    any suggestions for a camera?
    any suggestions in general?
    (money isn't really an issue, but try to keep it within normal :))

    *EDIT - and i misspelled the title :hs:

    A good way to start is just walk over to your local cc and sign up for photo 101, Gives you the basics of takeing pictures and even have some fun in the dark room. Or also there are clinics that you can go to for like a weekend that are also quite helpful.
