I want to get into photography, not professionally like just for fun as a hobby since I have a boring life, I'd like to go out and take pictures I enjoy just taking pictures,

I just wanted to know what camera's people would suggest, I know you can take them with anything and sort of make them look good, but the camera quality on my phone is just poor and it gets worse by the day i swear.

Don't really have a price range so far since I have no idea what would be a good price range so hit me with camera that you lot have got (if you do) and if you have any some pictures to go with it,

Also would you edit the pictures slightly to make them more better looking or would you just leave them standard/unedited.

Thank you all and have a wonderful day/night

Will rep every single one of you that help cause you cute x

Motto: 2b || !2b - That is the real question!
As for the camera itself, it really depends on what you're capturing but most budget DSLR's will suffice, i started with a Canon 1200D around about 5-6 years ago, and it was a solid camera for many years, there was nothing it couldn't do and for the price, was amazing. I now have a Canon M50 that I use for general pictures for hobbies and holidays etc.

In terms of editing, I usually touch up all pictures I take even if it's just a little, you can get a lot more out of pictures with a little bit of editing and it makes it all worth it.

I would advise shortlisting about 3 camera bodies and then doing heavy research on which one suits your needs best, same goes with the lenses, i have a variety ranging from 20mm to 300mm lenses for pretty much every scenario. I will recommend a 50mm lens though, those things rock...

I have to say I do like them Red Arrow pictures you took, and the one of the moon.

I'll look around for all sorts of different camera's, lenses etc. Could I pm you at some point about a few and get your opinion?

Sure, ior just reply here and maybe get others opinion too, it's been a while since I've looked into these kinds of things so my advice may not be the greatest,
