I think I’m at the point where I’m able to manipulate photos enough to know that I no longer want to. I can do great things when shooting in RAW and have managed to figure out how to tweak everything on my own (can you imagine what I could do with a little professional training?).
I think I’ve outgrown my equipment. My Canon Rebel XTi is a great starter, and my basic lenses have done wonders in extending the life and versatility. It really is a great intro to the DSLR semi-pros, but I have to move on.
