I'm a super noob. I've always loved photography and I am starting school at one of the art institutes later this year. I've been saving for a dslr camera but I don't know where to begin. First of all I LOVE MACROS. By far my favorite. But I have no idea where to begin. So my q is... I have pretty quick learning skills and I want something I will be able to grow into but not so complicated I wont be able to use it right away. I always loved Canon but the more I play around, the more I'm liking Nikon. Anybody have suggestions? And for the most basic of basics any ideas what your suggestions will cost? I will definitely need 2 different lenses. But other than that... no clue.
I glanced at the stickys to see what I could find but even the newbies here are more advanced than I am :'(
