ok, I've upgrade my set-up...still the 40D, I just acquired a 10-22mm wide angle, 70-30mm f/4 L, 24-105mm f/4 L, 50mm 1.8 and the 17-85mm kit lens. Im still working on my portfolio, and still working on my post-processing techniques. Though I love to attend school, time is not working out well on my side right now. I just read books at work. Getting married this June, priorities. I've looked at Humber's creative photography, is there any other school that you guys recommend? International Academy of Design? Sheridan?

Wow, you've acquired a nice collection of lens in such a short period of time! Just make sure that the lens you have are sharp, do some testing shooting wide open, if they're not sharp, considering they're all still under warranty, you either send them back to the store you bought it from or send it to Canon Canada for calibration.

As for school, since you don't have the time, I think it's best for you to read the photography magazines and forums. You'll learn alot from there and for sure you have to spend time playing around with the programs like Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. I'm no expert at these programs by any means but I can assist you with some things if needed. Just PM me

Im using a older Canon 10D camera with a few "L" lens...I rather spend money on better glass than upgrading to a newer body...you see some photographers spending tons of money on the new bodies but spend less money on average lenses.The heart and soul is still the glass,then you work your way down from there...

Thanks kerisabe! I love the set up that I have right now. Im just not ready for a full frame. Though I've tried some of the other "L" lenses they have, I'm quite impressed with some of the brands like Tokina's, specifically their 12-24mm wide angle zoom and their 10-17mm fish eye lens that costs half the price than of canon's. Very sharp. The body is made of metal not plastic. I will for sure contact you for some info. Cheers!
