All you need to start your photographic journey is an INTEREST in photography, and enough $$ to buy the equipment you think you'll need to get started. "Talent" is not necessary to be a hobbyist.
Ok I think the suan-ing has carried on far too long already. Am guilty of it myself.
TS, a bit of humility goes a long way. See how everyone picked on that one word.
If you're interested to capture stage performances at discos, etc, I reckon that you'll need QUITE A LOT of lighting gear. A standard D60 (or D90 or D300 for that matter) would be pretty ineffective, in my opinion. Maybe you'll need D700 + fast lens + SB900 + super-high ISO?
For newbie want to joint the money-game of dslr, be prepare to spend money for lenses,flash, tripod, dry box..etc.. for sure one will start with kits lens then, super zoom lens, then high grade lens, then crazy high price lens..etc
So be prepare!
P/s: I noticed the nick: TS ... whats that?
ok, this one serious one. Not any of those suan-ing post.
Start with D90 and 18-105mm lens. It will be a good start. At 105mm, u will find that u do not find yourself wanting to turn that zoom ring anything more than what is suppose to be the max. At least that's for me. I do alot of walkabout. Think streets & landscape.
But for ur disco lights..... I think its better to take a step at a time. Generally outdoor photography is easier IMHO. Learn your camera before learning what u wanna shoot or what effects u hope to achieve.
Hope this helps!
